ST. JOHN | After Lake Central's opening-match loss to Crown Point, Julie Moore knew she and her team had some work to do.

According to the Lake Central coach, her team needed to learn how to play together better.

Times No. 6 Lake Central took big steps toward that Tuesday night after dismantling Duneland Athletic Conference foe Portage 10-0.

After two quick goals from senior forward Kaileigh Kramer-Stephens and junior forward Brianna Dougherty, Lake Central struck twice within a span of two minutes.

In the 36th minute of the first half, junior midfielder Abby Peppin booted one from about 35 yards over the reach of Portage sophomore goalkeeper Bree Coleman for L.C.'s third goal.

A mere two minutes later, the host Indians drew Coleman, who had 17 saves, out of the net, and sophomore Madison Berumen batted one off of her chest past the sophomore for the fourth goal right before the half ended.

"They have really embodied teamwork lately," Moore said. "We've tried some different things and are learning to play with each other now."

Senior Lyana Burrink got into the scoring fray in the second half, as she scored two goals within two minutes to make it 6-0. Both of her goals came off of rebounds, including one that went off Coleman's hands right to her.

After a goal from junior Teresa Baranowski, Portage had a threat in the 56th minute.

After L.C. (3-3, 2-1 DAC) was called for a foul in the goalie box, senior defender Sarah Hernandez was awarded a penalty kick, but she couldn't convert, as the ball bounced on the top of the crossbar and over the goal.
