The Taylor Truman girls’ soccer team continued its hot start improving to 4-0 Wednesday night by dominating Lincoln Park 5-0 at home in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score would indicate.

Truman outshot the Rail splitters 35-1 and used its superior speed and ball movement to keep the ball in the Lincoln Park end for what seemed like the entire game.

“We had pretty good ball control and seemed to pass the ball well,” said Truman Coach Franco Antonnicola. “I wouldn’t want to compare this team to last years. We lost a lot of good players from last year, but we got two new ones coming in this year so I think we’ll be ok moving forward.”

The Cougars played unselfish soccer in the first half, using crisp passes to find the open player as three different players scored.

Tiffany Kitching got the party started by launching a rebound past Lincoln Park keeper Olivia McKinney just over 13 minutes in.

Savannah Novakowski scored seven minutes later and Anna Ciarlino used her speed to break away from the Rail splitter defenders and deposit the third Truman goal with 11:22 left in the first half.

The second half was more of the same for Truman.

The Cougars kept the game at their pace and Claire Ciarlino scored twice on free kicks, one corner kick and direct kick, to cap the Truman scoring in the win.

McKinney made some spectacular saves to even keep the game close for Lincoln Park, but in the end Lincoln Park remains winless on the year.
