Another complete effort propelled the Kaneland girls soccer team to a 3-0 victory Tuesday at Morris in its Northern Illinois Big 12 East opener.

Courtney Diddell and Holly Collingbourne tallied first-half goals for the Knights, with Michelle Ortiz providing an insurance goal down the stretch of the second half.

"You know what, we're playing pretty well right now," Knights coach Scott Parillo said. "We're able to possess the ball and create opportunities for us to score and limit the opponent's scoring opportunities."

Jess Coia, Heather Ortiz and Kiandra Powell each had assists for Kaneland, which improved to 5-1-0 overall. The Knights resume a busy stretch today with a West Aurora Tournament match against East Aurora, and would earn the tourney title with a win.

"It could be a pretty good week for us," Parillo said.
