WEST MILTON — Kristen Dickison was a sophomore when then-teammate Danielle McFarland set the Milton-Union girls soccer program’s all-time goal-scoring record.

Two years later, she took her turn.

Dickison, now a senior herself, scored all five Bulldog goals in a 5-0 non-league victory over Dayton Christian Thursday night at home, becoming Milton-Union’s all-time leading goal scorer with 84 by passing McFarland’s career total of 83.

Morgan Grudich, Hallie Berberich, Aulbrey Hergenrather and Annie Bennett each had an assist in the match. Dickison had already passed McFarland’s career record for assists earlier this season.

Bethel 1,

Stebbins 1

RIVERSIDE — Bethel struggled to get going offensively Thursday night, battling Stebbins to a 1-1 draw in non-league play.

Aiden Flomerfelt scored the goal for the Bees (4-3-3) on an assist from Nick Schmidt to tie the score with 15 minutes remaining.

“This was our first game in a week and a half, and I think it took a bit to kick off some of the rust,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “Though we gave up a goal early in the second, I thought we played very hard and created some good chances to win late in the match. We just need to find some way to get that big goal.”

Bethel hosts Southeastern Monday.
