Bysted's hat trick helps keep Parker soccer undefeated
The Vikings scored four goals in the second half en route to the 5-0 shutout of Lodi. Parker (2-0) has outscored its opponents 12-0 in two games.
“It was another solid team effort for us,” Parker coach Matt Beisser said. “Kelsey did the leg work to get a couple of the goals, but Ashleigh (Busfield) really did a great job of getting her the ball.
“This was probably the coldest and rainiest game I have ever been involved in,’’ he said. “We made the adjustments, though, and really dominated the whole game.”
Bysted, the school’s single-season all-time scoring leader, got the only goal of the first half on an assist from Nicole Strieker. Junior Catie O’Leary made it 2-0 early in the second half as the Vikings pushed the lead to 4-0 within the first 10 minutes of the second half.
Busfield, a senior, scored Parker’s fourth goal, and Bysted completed her hat trick with a goal at the 52-minute mark off an assist from O’Leary.
Parker goalie Sam Anacker needed to make only three saves to earn the shutout.
