Prep roundup: Sycamore girls soccer wins

MORRIS – The Sycamore girls soccer team scored three second-half goals Monday in a 3-0 win over Morris.

Sycamore (6-1-1, 2-0-1 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) got its first goal from Alexis Divita in the 42nd minute, and Alyssa Hemmerich scored about eight minutes later. Mallory Wolf scored the final goal off a rebound shot by Hemmerich. Drew Moulton was the winning keeper.

“The person who crossed it, Rachel Thurwanger, has a pretty good foot, so I knew where it was going to go,” Hemmerich said of the final goal. “It’s happened before. I just tried to put a head on it, and it hit the post. Mallory Wolf was there where she was supposed to be, and it went in the goal.”
