Kokomo scores 3 times in 6 minutes to take out Logan

Last week, the girls soccer squads from Kokomo and Logansport staged one of their classic grudge matches, going into overtime before the Wildkats scored the decider.

Thursday night in Logansport, the Kats came out intense, and never let it get tense.

Kokomo beat Logansport 3-0 Thursday night in the opening game of the Class 2A Logansport Sectional. The Kats took control with a three-goal flurry in a six-minute span midway through the first half.

“I didn’t want this to be last year,” Kokomo coach Myles Geary said, referring to a loss to Logan in last year’s sectional. “[Last year we] beat them in the regular season and then come back and we don’t score a goal at all [in the sectional]. I was glad to see we just came out so ready.

“We were so relaxed, so calm, so focused on just winning the game. It was a weird intensity. It was like, ‘We’ve got this.’”

Kokomo (9-5-1) advances to face Marion at 1 p.m. Saturday for the title. Marion beat Western 11-1 in Thursday’s second semifinal.

Kokomo got on the board in the 21st minute. The Wildkats got a long throw into the Logansport box and Logan goalie Elaine Evanich clashed with a Kat for the ball, neither came up with it and the ball ricocheted to forward Cheyenne Eltringham, who finished into an open net.

With the wind at their backs, the Kats kept coming. Addy Takacs had a big rip saved by Evanich, and Taylor Sparling sliced a shot just out of bounds before the Kats hit the net again in the 25th minute. Takacs, playing in center midfield, played a short looping ball over the Logan defense to Holly Stewart. Stewart raced Evanich to the ball, just getting a touch to it as they crossed paths, guiding the ball into the net for a 2-0 lead.
