On Wednesday night, Sept. 27, Sacred Heart Academy honored their soccer seniors with a 6-0 win over Oldham County High School.

The seniors honored were Cassie Amshoff, Ashley Brangers, Kiley Polk and Lexie Wagner. Amshoff and Polk have committed to play soccer at the University of Louisville. Brangers has committed to play at Centre College.

SHA Head Coach Jaclyn Puntillo said, “I am so grateful for these seniors. Their leadership on and off the field has been exemplary. On a personal note, I have known many of these players for years because of club soccer so watching them grow into strong young women has made me so proud.”

Sophomore Eliza Kelly and freshman Amanda Isaacs combined for a shutout. The Valkyries held a shutout, closing the game at 6-0. Goals were scored by Amshoff (2), sophomore Caroline Effinger, junior Brielle Heuglin (2), and junior Lauren Payne. Assists were made by Amshoff, sophomore Callie Birk, junior Ashley Durik, and Heuglin.

“Senior night was bittersweet. It was amazing, but at the same time sad,” said Wagner.

The Valkyries will be back in action this Saturday at home against Lakota East from Ohio. JV will play at 1:00 p.m. Varsity will follow at 3:00 p.m.
