Justice Menge was a force to be reckoned with on Thursday night. Menge scored four goals for SPASH as the Panthers cruised to a 5-1 victory in WIAA Division 1 regional action.
SPASH didn’t waste much time finding the back of the net. Autum Shurbert-Hetzel hit the game’s first goal on an assist from Kaylin Kostuchowski at the 4:15 mark.
After that, it was all Menge all the time.
Menge struck at 16:54 in the first half to give the Panthers a 2-0 lead.
Menge padded her stats by adding three more goals in the second half, one of which was assisted by Jamie Clemens.
SPASH out-shot North 16-8 in the game.
Defensively, Shayna Molski recorded five saves for the Panthers.
SPASH will move on to play Eau Claire Memorial in Eau Claire on Saturday, June 6.
