Megan Bunker’s 100th career goal highlighted Indian Creek’s 23-0 home win over Chapelgate Christian Academy on Friday.
Bunker, a senior, netted her milestone goal in the opening minutes of the Eagles’ victory, which moved the team to 3-0 in Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland C Conference play.
“I’m fortunate first off just to have a season in the crazy world right now,” said Bunker. “When hitting a milestone like that, to have such a supportive group of girls and a great coaching staff to be there me when I get to achieve something like that, it just feels so great, and it definitely makes the whole experience a lot better.”
Junior Mia Putzi scored five goals to lead Indian Creek, which had 10 players score. Bunker (three goals), Sophee Gomberg (three), Molly Bunker (three), Abby Bach (two), Kalle Huff (two), Cali Schwerdtfeger (two), Avery Barnhill, Havana Mullaly and Portia Fernandes all had goals for the Eagles. Freshman goalie Elia Alewine made five saves.
With conferences victories over Key, Pallotti and Chapelgate and a scoring differential of 61-5, Indian Creek’s players are confident they can reach their goals for the season.
“That’s been the goal from the beginning, so no matter what kind of season we have, we’ve always wanted a championship,” said Bunker. “This year, we definitely have the skill on the team to be able to attain that. Everybody puts in so much work at practice, the effort is there from every single individual on the team, and I really think it’s an attainable goal this year, and that’s what we’re working toward.”
