BEECHER | As a sophomore, Beecher forward Jordyn Miner knows to give plenty of credit where credit is due.

Miner's two goals helped to lift the Ladycats to a 4-0 win over Wilmington. Miner recorded goals midway through the first half and again midway through the second in Beecher's third annual Shoot for the Troops game to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

Hannah Giroux had two assists for the Ladycats, while Eve Stolzenbach and Kristen Martinez each scored for Beecher.

"Honestly, I couldn't have done it without my team," Miner said. "I had amazing passes, especially from Hannah Giroux. Without her, I wouldn't have been able to score them."

Miner found the back of the net with a loose ball in front of the Wildcats' (1-4) goal at 20:10 of the first half to give Beecher (3-6) the 1-0 lead. Eight minutes later, Stolzenbach scored on a shot from just outside the Wilmington box to open the Ladycats' lead to 2-0.

"I thought we came out a little nervous at the beginning of the game," Beecher coach Dawn Compton said. "Twenty minutes in, we settled down and moved the ball to the outside. Hannah did really well getting those crosses off."

Miner's scored a second goal with 21:29 remaining in the second half. Beecher keeper Kristen Bonk had a relatively quiet day in goal, finishing with three saves. Beecher dominated possession, and Wilmington was unable to get a quality look at the Beecher goal until the final two minutes.

"This is a really big event for our team," Miner said of the Shoot for the Troops game. "It's a good cause, and it's a lot of fun. I think it's a really great thing."

The Ladycats were looking to raise $1,200 for the Wounded Warrior project and were well on their way to their goal with over $700 raised before the start of the game. It is the third consecutive year for the Ladycats' Shoot for the Troops match, and the team was looking to raise more than in the previous two years.

"Every year we've averaged between seventeen and twenty vets coming out," Compton said. "It's great for our community. It's great for our school. The girls enjoy doing this. They enjoy giving back to those who need it."
