Gazette Staff



The Olentangy Orange girls soccer team picked up a convincing non-league win over visiting Westerville North, scoring a pair of goals in each half on the way to a 4-0 win Thursday night in Lewis Center.

Alexis Knisely broke the scoring seal just four minutes into the action.

It turned out to be the only goal the Pioneers would need.

They got a trio of others just for good measure, though. Lauryn Barringer made it 2-0 by converting a penalty kick later in the first half before Barringer and Kaelyn Valleau scored in the second half to account for the final margin.

Gahanna took the third 25-16 before Berlin rallied to win the fourth and fifth by respective 25-15 and 15-13 margins.

Roz Zeilinski led the Bears with 15 kills and five blocks.
