Janesville Craig, Parker lose in Big Eight soccer matches
Elizabeth Conejo proved too tough to handle Thursday night for Janesville Craig’s girls soccer team.
The Sun Prairie sophomore scored three goals to lead the Cardinals to a 3-1 Big Eight Conference win over the Cougars.
Craig (9-9, 3-5) tied the game at 1-1 on Chelsea Sheedy’s goal at 28:14 of the first half, but Conejo scored twice in the second half.
“Conejo’s a very nice player,” Craig coach Bill McCabe said. “She does everything well. She’s quick, passes well and really sees the field.
“She got away from us a couple of times in the second half, and that was the difference.”
Craig plays at Lake Mills in a nonconference game today.

-- Beloit 6, Parker 1—The Purple Knights scored four goals in the second half to break open a close Big Eight game.
Ellery Nemetz scored Parker’s goal on a penalty kick in the first half.
“It was a very physical game,” Parker coach Amy Wargowsky said. “We got a red card and were forced to play the last 60 minutes of the game with only 10 players.”
Parker concluded the regular season with a 3-17-2 record, including 0-9 in the Big Eight Conference.
