Hewes’ Hat Trick Leads CLCS

MAYVILLE – Courtney Hewes had a hat trick and Chautauqua Lake opened its season with an 8-0 nonleague girls soccer win over Panama.

The Lady Thunderbirds (1-0) built up a 4-0 halftime lead and Gina Sena stopped all six shots she faced en route to the shutout.

Sarah Russin added two goals while Bree Girdlestone, Emily Corwin and Abby Andriaccio each chipped in a goal for Chautauqua Lake. Girdlestone, Corwin and Brittany Fardink each had an assist.

“We were hoping for a good contest and a good win,” said third-year coach Ryan Smith, who had no seniors on last year’s team. “We’ve been practicing hard and are looking forward to a more veteran team this year.”
