Maybe the only thing Evergreen did wrong all night was giving up Kierstyn Johnson’s goal with 15 seconds left with attacker Paige Radel taking a turn in the net.

However, before that happened the Vikings did almost everything right, ringing up a 7-0 first half lead before beating Rossford 10-1 Tuesday to even their record at 3-3 on the year.

The Vikes, who were hampered by a clinic full of early-season injuries, have now won three straight with a combined score of 21-1.

It took Radel less than six minutes into the game to put Evergreen on top.

Sydney Woodring found her slashing to the net for a goal at the 34:22 mark to begin the barrage.

Then, starting with 28:53 on the clock, the Vikings knocked home three goals in 51 seconds.

Radel hit Kenzie Mitchey streaking down the left side for her first of back-to-back goals in 25 seconds.

Then Mitchey, working a back and forth game with freshman Sofia Rodriguez, got her second to make it 3-0.

Twenty-six seconds later, Woodring took a centering pass from Radel and nailed a crossing shot going right-to-left to make it 4-0, still with over 28 minutes left in the half.

Radel took a loose ball, and then weaved her way down the right sideline for a score 14 minutes later for a 5-0 lead. Then Kaylee Hein “bent it like Beckham” on a corner kick, sticking it into the top corner of the net with 10:20 left.

A minute later, freshman Brooklyn Camacho took a pass from Rodriguez and drilled one past the goalie going left of center before the Vikings played keep away for the rest of the half.

Evergreen had a whopping 25 shots on goal in the first half, compared to just two for Rossford.

Raegan Radel got into the mix with two second half goals — one from Mitchey and the other from Paige Radel.

Those goals sandwiched Anna Huntzinger’s dart off a pass from Woodring to give the Vikings a 10-spot with 20 minutes left in the game.

Evergreen plays Liberty Center in an NWOAL contest Thursday, and then hosts Spencerville Saturday.
