WAUPACA, Wis. — The Marinette girls soccer team improved to 3-3 in the North Eastern Conference thanks to a four-goal day from Alison Hulce in the Marines 4-1 win over Waupaca on Monday.

The Comets took an early 1-0 lead when the Marinette defense got mixed up on a cross and Madie Gile found the back of the net at 4 minutes, 16 seconds into the game.

“Just a little mix up defensively there,” Marinette coach Chris Mahlik said. “Thankfully it was early on and we really cleaned it up after that.”

Hulce got the Marines on the board at the 16:11 mark on a pass from Auburn Waloway and gave Marinette the lead 36:36 into the first half on another long breakaway pass from Waloway.

Just under 10 minutes into the second half, Hulce netted another goal, this time on a through-ball pass from Maddy Torkko. She closed out the scoring at the 74-minute mark on a long pass from Monica Brown.

“Alison had a great night,” Mahlik said. “She capitalized on a few chances and our girls did a good job of getting her the ball in the open and letting her work. Maddy (Torkko) did a good job of controlling the center, and Maddy Sims and Emily Sulk were both great on defense. We had a lot of good stuff from everyone.”

The Marines host Freedom on Thursday.
