DIXON — Tournament hardware.

That was the goal for Kalyn Kemp’s Owensville Dutchgirl soccer team last week during the annual Dixon Girls Soccer Tournament in Pulaski County.

Opening the tournament last Thursday against Belle’s Lady Tigers, OHS looked to begin their quest for hardware on a winning note.

Leading 3-0 at halftime against their Highway 28 neighbors to the west, Owensville tacked on four more goals in the second half to go on to a 7-0 victory.

Seeing their first three shots turned away against Belle, Landry Watson put one through on an assist from Leah Reed for a 1-0 lead at the 31:41 mark of the first half.

Over six minutes later, Kylie Kitchen hit the cross bar before heading in the rebound for a goal and a 2-0 OHS lead with 25:07 for the half.

Anya Binkhoelter capped the first-half scoring with a goal at the 11:07 mark for a 3-0 Dutchgirl lead at halftime.

Starting the second half, Watson scored her second goal of the game at the 33:56 mark pushing the Owensville lead to 4-0.

Binkhoelter netted her second of the game on an assist from Jocelyn Benson for a 5-0 OHS lead at the 28:23 mark of the second half.

Adding to her earlier assist, Benson added her name to the list of goal scorers on an assist from Camri Jones giving the orange and black a 6-0 lead with 13:00 left.

With time winding down in the match, Binkhoelter completed a hat trick with her third goal of the game at the 3:19 mark of the second half of Owensville’s 7-0 victory over Belle.

Emily Krause needed to make only one save in the second half to secure a shutout in goal.

Looking to go 2-0 in the tournament, Owensville returned to Dixon the next night to face Laquey’s Lady Hornets.

Only able to manage a second-half goal from Watson, OHS was stung 5-1 by Laquey who went on to win the tournament.

Saturday action in Dixon saw the Dutchgirls play a pair of matches against the host Lady Bulldogs and Crocker’s Lady Lions.

Leading 2-1 at halftime against Dixon, OHS got second-half goals from Lily Reed, Watson and Kitchen to defeat the Lady Bulldogs 5-1.

Closing out the tournament against Crocker, Owensville dropped a close 2-0 match to the Lady Lions.
