BELOIT - Janesville Craig outshot the Beloit Knitro 22-3 Tuesday night, posting a 6-0 big Eight Conference girls soccer victory at Jacobson Field.

Hannah Dunlavy scored the lone goal in the first half. The Cougars tacked on five second-half goals, including three by Hannah Loertsche. Greta Hanthorn and Gracie Weston also scored for Craig.

"We played a fairly solid first half, but came out and made some crucial mistakes in the second half," Knitro head coach Brian Denu said. "We struggled to make some simple clearances that gave Craig open shots on (goalie) Meghan Drucker."

Drucker finished with 10 saves.

Denu wasn't disappointed with his team's performance.

"Craig is a highly-skilled team that you can not allow the time and space we gave them tonight," Denu said. "I appreciated the effort from the girls tonight and feel that we have the potential to develop into a good team. This is the first opportunity many of our players have had a chance to play against one of the top Big Eight teams. Every game, win or lose, will be an opportunity to get better.

"We are preaching that wins and losses don't really matter until the playoffs and hoping that our young, inexperienced squad stays the course even through tough games like tonight."
