Kelly girls lead shutout effort

The Kelly girls celebrated their Senior Night in a big way for the Princeton soccer team at the Tiskilwa pitch Monday.

Michelle Kelly scored on a second-half penalty kick and Kelly Schmidt made 14 saves on goal to preserve a 1-0 win by the Tigresses over Indian Creek. It was the 13th shutout of the season, now just two off of the school record.

Coach Ed Young called it a “great victory.”

Seniors and their parents recognized include Rachel Frank, Lindsay Hartwig, Liz Stites, Kelly and Schmidt.
