Huskies Freshman Nets Hat Trick-Plus-One
The Owatonna High School girls soccer team poured it on in a 7-1 win over Albert Lea at the Lincoln Soccer Complex Monday night in a makeup of a match postponed last week due to heavy rain. OHS freshman Ezra Oien scored her first varsity goal and added three more after that.
Ela Breur started the scoring in the opening minute of the match. Abby Vetsch took the initial shot and Breuer knocked in the rebound. Oien put in her first goal in the 12th minute with an assist to Anna Herzog. Those two are also teammates on the Huskies hockey team where Oien has also shown a nice scoring touch.
Albert Lea quickly answered to trim the Huskies lead to 2-1 but Oien added two more before halftime for a 4-1 Huskies lead. Vetsch and Asia Buryska scored in the second half in addition to Oien's fourth of the night, coming off an assist from Tatum Walkingstick to give the Huskies the 7-1 win.
