POLSON — The Wildkats got back in the win column with a 5-0 road victory against the Polson Lady Pirates on Tuesday.

Hope McAtee scored twice and Josie Harris, Tayler Lingle and freshman Mila Johns all added goals.

“I am so proud of the team for how they performed tonight,” coach Thomas Clark said. “We have had a ton of success in our possession and how we’ve played this year, but we’ve struggled to consistently score goals, tonight the girls changed that.”

Harris notched two assists for the Wildkats (4-3 in Northern A).

“There were so many special performances out there — our attacking players Hope McAtee, Josie Harris, Sydney Mann and Tayler Lingle really stepped up,” Clark added. “I thought Mila Johns proved what kind of player she can be when she decides to attack, and the fact that she is just a freshman is absolutely crazy.”
