Freshman Kate Hausladen scored five goals for Oak Ridge in a 7-0 win over Halls at home on Thursday. It wasn’t immediately clear if that was a record for a freshman in one game, or for any player in one game.
“I like to score,” said Hausladen, a left forward, as the Lady Wildcats improved to 2-0.
Hausladen said she scored early, within the first four minutes, and that gave Oak Ridge a boost. On Thursday, she was scoring from the back post on crossing passes, kicking the ball into the left side of the net.
“She’s sitting at the right spot and cleaning them up,” Oak Ridge Coach Jeff Trombly said.
He said other players who had a great game on Thursday included midfielders Alex Allen and Ellie Brown, both seniors, and senior goalkeeper Jaz Rizk.
Oak Ridge finished with 32 shots on goal, compared to five for the Lady Red Devils, and eight corner kicks, compared to one.
Oak Ridge opened the season in a 6-0 win over Anderson County at home on Tuesday, August 18.
The Lady Wildcats will travel to McMinn County on Tuesday, August 25. They’ll be back home to play Karns on Thursday, August 27.
