Junior Shannon Eaton played the entire game at goalkeeper and had eight saves. Sophomore Olivia McQueary did not play because of injuries. The two split halves at goalkeeper last year.
Highlands also won the junior varsity game 10-0 forcing an early end because of the 10-goal rule. The Ladybird freshmen also won 7-0.
The varsity does not play again until Aug. 27. Cincinnati Anderson comes across the river for a 7:30 p.m. contest.
