OA blanks Jennings County

Oldenburg Academy made short work of the visiting Jennings County Lady Panthers.

Oldenburg scored three times in the first half en route to a  7-0 victory.

It took the Lady Twisters about 10 minutes to get settled and establish a firm control of the game, however, once they did, the goals came frequently, according to assistant coach John Enneking.

Hanauer  and Lewis (2)  scored first half goals.

Early on in the second half in the 44th minute, Ricke made a nice throw in to Hanauer who made a quick turn and scored from 12 yards out to make it 4-0.  Less than 5 minutes later, the ball was bouncing around inside the 6 yard box where a deflection went right to Gretchen Wilder who took the shot and gave the twisters a 5-0 lead. 

Wilder  added two more goals to make it a seven point margin.
