The Highlands Ladybirds soccer team won its second straight with a 3-2 win at Dixie Heights on Monday.

The Ladybirds (6-8-1) scored three goals in the first half and held on for the win. Senior Taylor Vaughn led the way with two goals. Vaughn had a nice head ball off a Claudia Hils corner kick. She scored her assistant off an assist from sophomore Kierstin Clukey.

Sophomore Kayla Nehus scored the other Highlands goal. She dribbled through three defenders and finished far post.

“I got a little too lax in the second half putting some girls in positions that aren’t their primary positions,” said Brian Wiefering, Highlands Head Coach. “Within about 10 minutes in the second half, Dixie scored a goal on a quick counter and then a penalty kick that the ref called a handball that I didn’t see anything close to a handball. I reorganized girls in their starting positions and we kept the ball on our offensive half the last 10 minutes. That’s a lesson learned for a rookie coach.”

Once again freshman Olivia McQueary and sophomore Shannon Eaton played the first and second halves respectively in the net. Defensively, senior Peyton Bankemper marked Dixie standout Lauren Nemoroff.
