Kernel girls score early to pull away from Garretson


GARRETSON -- The Mitchell High School girls soccer team struck early against Garretson on Thursday, powering it to a 4-1 win.

The Kernels netted three goals in the first half. They improve to 4-2 this season with their second straight win.

“Garretson is a tough place to play,” MHS coach Bob Lemon said. “It took us some time to get used to it.”

Once Mitchell found a rhythm, it was able to find the back of the net often. It out-shot Garretson 13-5 in the game.

Macy Kempf scored the first goal, with Mia Mullenmeister recording the assist. Mullenmeister found the back of the net less than five minutes later, though, with Seemela Novak scoring Mitchell’s final goal of the half.


Novak was able to add a second goal in the second half, which came less than two minutes after Garretson’s Riley Altman scored the Blue Dragons’ only goal of the match. Caroline Titze finished with four saves in the win.

“We played well at times tonight but certainly have things we need to work on,” Lemon said.

Mitchell travels to Watertown on Sept. 12.
