Krieser, Thorndike lift St. Mary's

Mackenzie Krieser and Anna Thorndike each pulled off a hat trick Saturday to keep St. Mary's undefeated in District 4 girls soccer with a 6-0 win over Cascade Christian at U.S. Cellular Community Park.

Thorndike curled in a corner kick in the 15th minute to put the Crusaders (12-0-1, 7-0 Dist. 4) on the board, and Krieser scored 16 minutes later on a nice shot from about 20 yards.

The Challengers (3-6-1, 2-4) staved off any further damage with a solid effort to trail only 2-0 at intermission, but St. Mary's proved to be too much for the 11-deep squad.

"The first half was very, very entertaining and very well contested," said Cascade Christian head coach Mick Power. "We played well, but you can't take it away from St. Mary's, especially with people like Krieser."

Thorndike scored two straight goals to open the second half, with Abby Steinsiek earning the assist on the final effort. Krieser then closed out the Challengers with goals in the 66th and 79th minutes.

"Krieser's goals were just quality, they really were," added Powers.
