Parker, Craig soccer teams shut out
Verona’s girls soccer team kept Becky Harmata busy Thursday night.
Harmata, Janesville Parker’s goalie, played admirably, making a whopping 28 saves, but the Vikings fell to the Wildcats 4-0.
Emily Krogman scored three times for Verona.
“I think this is the best team we’ve seen,” Parker coach Steve Strieker said. “But Becky was outstanding. Probably 12 of her 28 saves were phenomenal saves, many of them at point-blank range. We just couldn’t keep up with them.”
The Vikings fell to 4-12 overall and will travel to Elkhorn for a nonconference match tonight.

• Memorial 1, Craig 0—Daniella Bosben’s first-half goal stood up for the Spartans at Craig High.
Bosben scored in the 35th minute, the lone blemish against Cougars keeper Maddie Schroeder.
“(Bosben) had a mini breakaway; we kind of got caught in the middle,” Craig coach Bill McCabe said. “Other than that, Maddie Schroeder played a spectacular game. And that goal wasn’t her fault.
“Lindsay Hamilton was solid at the back, and Savannah Goicoechea played so solid in the front.”
Craig’s Sammi Champion had her team’s best look at a goal, but Memorial’s keeper made solid play midway through the second half to keep the clean sheet.
Craig, now 2-11-1 overall and 1-6 in the Big Eight, plays at Middleton on Tuesday.
