Emma Steele scored four goals Wednesday, helping Falconer (3-1-1, 3-0) to a convincing 8-1 win over Dunkirk (0-5, 0-3), during CCAA Division 1 girls' soccer action at Karl Hoeppner Field.
"The girls just didn't have the same energy they had the two previous league games," Dunkirk head coach Phil Cook said. "We were trying to find the right chemistry with the right girls (Wednesday). We just gave up too many good scoring chances."
Kaylee Keith and Julia Anderson gave the Lady Golden Falcons a 2-0 lead heading into halftime while Andrea Volk scored a pair of goals in the second half.
