The Frankfort girls’ soccer team had its five-game winning streak broken with a 9-0 loss to the West Lafayette Red Devils on Tuesday at Frankfort.

West Lafayette is currently ranked No. 8 in Class 2A.

“It was a tough game against a really good opponent, which was our message the past few days,” Frankfort head coach Isaac Field said. “Our message was that playing them was a bench mark test as a program and team.”

The Hot Dogs allowed four goals in the first 30 minutes before going into the half with a 4-0 deficit.

“Our play for the first 25 minutes wasn’t the greatest, and we took some goals that happened due to them executing their plan well. Once a few changes were made before halftime, we looked better and even for a little after the second half started.

“It really came to a head when our starting goalie was knocked out in the first half, and we had to use our emergency goalie since our No. 2 was unavailable,” Field added. “Jessie was cleared to return in the second half but went down with another injury keeping her out of the game. Marisol Cervantes Zamora did a great job in an emergency effort for us, but you can tell that she only does a little goalie work each week.”

West Lafayette added five goals in the second half as the Hot Dogs never were able to find the back of the net.

“The few offensive chances we had were promising. We just couldn’t quite get the finish,” Field said. “I was glad to see that, even losing big, the girls didn’t lose their drive to finish the game and play our brand of soccer.”

West Lafayette outshot the Hot Dogs, 20-3. Freshman Kylie Rief scored two goals and added four assists for the Red Devils while Anneliese Given had two goals and an assist, Catalina Posado and Katy Penquite each finished with a goal and two assists, Cami Strachen and Caroline Sautter each scored a goal, and Katie Auberry added an assist.

The Hot Dogs (5-2, 2-0 Sagamore Athletic Conference) takes on the North Montgomery Chargers starting at 5:30 p.m. today at Frankfort.

“Hopefully we can get healed up by Thursday for our conference game against North Montgomery,” Field said.
