They make it look easy.
On Tuesday night, Summit’s varsity girls' soccer team dominated rival West Holmes to clinch their spot at the state soccer championship game with a decisive 5-0 win. The team, down its leading scorer after an injury in the district finals, relied on a deep bench to perform offensively and defensively. By halftime, there was little room for doubt that the Silver Knights were on their way to Columbus for the first time since moving up from the Division III rank to Division II.
The five goals were scored by four different players while starting goalie Maddie Mescher ‘25 made three saves to keep the opponent scoreless. According to stats kept by maxpreps.com, the Silver Knights are exceptional in terms of goals per game (3.3 versus national average of 2.7) and goals against (10 versus national average of 26). The game against West Holmes was the Silver Knights’ 15th shutout of the season.
