Warriors dominate Cadets

DANVILLE — Danville’s Stephanie Burdsall scored her state-leading 30th goal of the season in the seventh minute of the Warriors’ contest with Cascade, giving her team a lead it did not relinquish at Hendricks Regional Health Field at Warrior Stadium Thursday night.

Burdsall, a junior forward, added three more goals as Danville (10-1) dominated Cascade, 7-0.

Cascade goalkeeper Madison McGlaun’s indecision cost her as Burdsall slotted her shot into the lower right-hand corner. Burdsall added her second score in the 32nd minute for an early 2-0 lead.

Cascade attempted two shots on goal in the first half, both coming in the final four minutes. Each time, Danville goalkeeper Skyla Winberg made the save.

Diving to her left with just a minute to go, Winberg stopped a left-footed shot much to the dismay of Cascade midfielder Olivia Fisher.

Danville coach Robert Dowhen said his team’s game plan was to put Fisher off of her game by disallowing her to run free.

That became an easier task once Fisher’s teammate, Jalynn Gorman, sustained a knee injury in a tackle for the ball that ended her night.

Danville was able to focus primarily on Fisher the rest of the way. Cascade coach Sean Adams said Gorman is the team’s best player offensively.

“I thing that was weighing on ‘em at half,” Adams said of the team’s concern for Gorman.

While Cascade was concerned with Gorman’s status, the Warriors were enjoying the 2-0 lead.

“For us to come out strong, it takes away their momentum and heightens ours,” Burdsall said.

Twenty seconds into the second half, Burdsall dribbled down the pitch and from about 10 yards away her left-footed shot rolled into the opposite side netting. With that score, Burdsall completed her seventh hat trick of the season.

Danville doubled its lead three minutes later as sophomore Maya Quandt scored her ninth goal of the season.
