GSL soccer blanks Rockford for second win of season

It’s been a long road to victory No. 2 for the Glencoe-Silver Lake girls’ soccer team, but the Panthers accomplished the feat on Tuesday, Sept. 26, with a 2-0 defeat of Rockford at Stevens Seminary Stadium.
Goalkeeper Zoe Christensen made 13 saves for her first shutout of the season, with forward Paola Pena and midfielder Emily Thalmann scoring for the home side as part of a five-shot attack.
For Thalmann, the junior co-captain, the goal was her team-high fifth of the season. Pena’s goal was the senior’s first of the season.
“There’s been a lot of challenges this season,” Thalmann said. “We like to overcome them and have fun doing it.”
Christensen has made 153 saves in her eight games in the GSL goal, registering a save percentage of 85 percent.
