Girls Varsity Soccer
COLUMBUS, Ind. – Senior Kristen Orben scored in the 27th minute and the Columbus North defense posted its third shutout in five games Saturday night (Aug. 26), lifting the Bull Dogs to a 1-0 victory over rival Columbus East at Richard Wigh Soccer Complex.
Orben’s found the net off a feed from junior Tanner Johnson, and the goal stood up as the defense allowed just two shots on goal – both saved by Bull Dogs senior Liz Tynan – as CN improved to 4-0-1 for the season.
