TROY — After a hard-fought and emotional 1-0 win over Sidney last week, it would have been easy for the Troy girls soccer team to have a letdown in its next game.
The Trojans didn’t let that happen, though,
Troy won its third straight overall Monday night at Troy Memorial Stadium, shutting out Miamisburg 4-0 to improve to 7-3 on the season.
Megan Malott had a goal and two assists, Kenzie Evans had a goal and an assist, Kiyha Adkins and Audrey Brumfield each had a goal and Olivia Westfall had an assist as the Trojans got payback on a Viking team (4-6) that upset them 1-0 the previous season.
Troy — still in second in the Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division standings — now travels to Butler Wednesday to face the third-place Aviators in a critical matchup before next week’s showdown with division-leading Tippecanoe.
Other scores: Troy Christian 2, Newton 0. Dayton Christian 2, Bethel 0.

Ben Lawson, Evan Hart, Nick Schmidt and Garrett Gatrell each scored a goal, Tyler Brueckman had two assists and Cannon Dakin and Brandon Whetstone each had one assist.
“We really jumped on Northeastern early, scoring twice in the first 1:30 of the match. That kind of set the tone for the rest of the game,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “Again, the ability to make great runs opened great spaces for our offense to find dangerous opportunities. But what actually made me the happiest tonight was the attitude we came in with. We have had some games recently where it was easy for us to be motivated to play. Tonight, we came mentally ready to play and dictated the outcome. Great teamwork from everyone on the team.”

VANDALIA — The Troy boys golf team tuned up for Thursday’s postseason Greater Western Ohio Conference tournament on Monday, traveling to Cassel Hills and defeating host Tippecanoe 156-171 on Monday.
Holden Scribner was medalist for the Trojans with an even-par 35. Nate Uhlenbrock shot 38, Travis Bertram shot 41, Nathan Henderson and Connor Stoltz both shot 42 and Zac Collin shot 45.
“This was a great tuneup for Thursday,” Troy coach Mark Evilsizor said. “There are some similarities between Cassel Hills and Beechwood (where the post-GWOC will be played). It’s great to see some of our scores getting to where we want them to be for Thursday. We’re going to need our No. 3 and 4 scores to be low.”
