Soccer: Thunder cruise 5-0 against North Lakes

The Zimmerman Thunder got goals from five different players and defeated North Lakes Academy 5-1 at home on Thursday.

Brooke Salo, Jamie Pensinger, Amanda Sahr, Cami Bond and Haley Artmann scored as the Thunder improved to 6-8.

It was a non-conference game, but North Lakes is in Zimmerman’s section. The Thunder are 4-3  against Section 4AA rivals.

The Thunder had three yellow cards and one red card, called on Salo, who will miss the next game at Little Falls on Tuesday. Coach Jeff Downing said it appeared to be inadvertent contact between Salo and an NLA player chasing a ball.

The Thunder played three games in three days, losing to conference power St. Cloud Cathedral 7-0, then beating Mounds Park Academy 3-2 and North Lakes Academy.
