NEWTON — Newton’s Cardinals recorded another shutout Friday night
In front of a home crowd, the Class 2A 13th-ranked Newton girls powered past visiting Boone, 5-0. The Cardinals improved to 11-3.
Newton finishes the regular season tonight at home against Norwalk in a Little Hawkeye Conference game.
Senior Amber Karsten’s hat trick — three goals — led the Cardinals. Michaela Jacobson, a defender for the Cardinals, scored a goal on a corner kick and Ryanne Rausch added the other goal.
Emily Forsyth, senior goalkeeper, had one save on the night. Newton head coach Cathy Reiter said Forsyth only had one other touch of the ball the rest of the time “as we just played a lot of offense.”
Newton was able to play everyone suited up for the game.
