PONTIAC – The Pontiac Notre Dame Prep Fighting Irish girls soccer season improved to 2-0 with an emphatic 6-2 victory over the Auburn Hills Avondale Yellow Jackets on Thursday night.

“It was great. Putting some balls in the back of the net gives us an opportunity to get some of the other girls in the game,” Notre Dame Prep head coach Jim Stachura said. “Overall, it was a nice effort in tough conditions today.”

Lauren Gunterman opened the scoring for the Fighting Irish just under 10 minutes into the game when she headed in a loose ball following a corner kick, and from there the Irish were off and running.

Taylor Timko popped in two goals just over six minutes apart midway through the first half to give Notre Dame Prep some breathing room at 3-0, and the Yellow Jackets couldn’t quite fight their way back into the game after that.

Avondale got a goal from Kassidy Embrey with 12:11 to play in the first half when Embrey fired a shot in off the crossbar to make it 3-1, and the Yellow Jackets put some pressure on early in the second half, but they couldn’t close the gap any further and then Timko and Lindsey Klei both scored for Notre Dame to put the game out of reach at 5-1.

“We talked at halftime about just managing the game,” Stachura said. “I think after that first fifteen minutes, once we got that fourth goal it was over.”

“The first half we’d possess and then turn it over, possess then turn it over. It was just repetitive. I don’t think we had much energy or desire. I think we had a little let down coming off a good result against Troy,” Avondale head coach Doug Steinard said.
