Girls soccer: Koel scores 4 as Alex shuts out Willmar

ALEXANDRIA -- Senior striker Gabrielle Koel scored four times as Alexandria crushed Willmar by the American football score of 7-0 on Thursday.

Alexandria put in three goals -- two by Koel -- in the first 10 minutes.

"(Koel) is an extremely fast forward who was able to penetrate our defense," said coach Chelsea Brown. "Our girls were a little shaken but at halftime we were able to regroup and played a good second half."

Koel had a hat trick by halftime and tallied again just 12 seconds following intermission. Abygayl Nevarez played her man-on the rest of the way and held her in check.

Willmar (0-1, 2-1) hosts 2A foe Worthington at 11 a.m. Saturday.
