Soccer pouring the offense on

Lady Knights soccer (6-4-1, 0-2 Western Sun Conference) hasn’t seen this much early success in quite a while, but it’ll take it.

KHS weapon Emily Heimerdinger once again showed an affinity for the net by scoring one goal in each half.

In less than ideal weather, the Lady Knights peppered 30 shots on goal compared to just three for ICHS.

Meanwhile, Coach Kevin Bickley’s JV roster is not only unbeaten in six matches, but has yet to score a goal.

On Thursday, the JV Lady Knights beat visiting Hampshire 4-0, behind two goals by Katie Taylor and two by Abby Bend.

On Friday, Kaneland varsity used a prolific second half to squash Morris, 5-0.

Braving strong wind gusts, Heimerdinger scored three goals and Haley Johnson contributed with a goal and assist. Colleen Gebauer had two assists, while Andi Bruce added a goal. Megan Gil also notched an assist.

On Tuesday, KHS fell victim to the visiting Geneva Lady Vikings 6-0.
