Kayla Campbell factored in all three Franklin goals during a 3-0 win over Worcester on Friday, Sept. 20 in Tri-Valley League girls soccer.
The sophomore scored twice and dished out an assist while goalie Molly McLaughlin earned the shutout in net with six saves.
“She had more duties than usual tonight,” Franklin coach Gerald Laing said. “We were relying on her to do more tonight—we were missing Maddie Ackley—be more of a playmaker as well as being the scorer.”
Campbell saw tight coverage from Worcester all game, but still found a way to do damage on the scoresheet.
“Kayla knows it going into each game,” Laing said about opposing teams trying to shut down Campbell. “A lot of it is going to come down to what she does with movement around the ball.”
Campbell scored both of her goals in the opening frame with the first coming at 36:27 on a boot to the right corner. Her second was off a direct kick from 30 yards that dipped just below the crossbar.
Zoe Warren made it 3-0 in the second half following a corner from Campbell that found Warren running toward the back post at 26:49.
“They were the better team today,” Worcester coach James Kenyon said in a media release. “We knew we could not give Campbell a clear look at the goal—she is a terrific player.”
Shots (12-6) and corners (2-1) fell in Franklin’s favor after 80 minutes of action.
“We’re going to have to punish teams who follow us and follow Kayla (around),” Laing said. “I thought she was very dominant tonight.”
