The North Platte High School girls' soccer team didn't start its district semifinal game with Omaha Bryan on Monday as fast as it wanted to.

But the Lady Bulldogs picked it up as the game went along to advance past the Bears with an 8-0 victory at Bauer Field.

NPHS will play Millard West in the A-4 finals on Wednesday.

"We were slow to start with our traditional game," said North Platte coach Sarah Kaminski. "But the girls do such a good job of making adjustments and fixing what they need to and they did that in the second half."

The Lady Dawgs (12-2) scored its first goal seven minutes into the game. Marisa Martinez made a corner kick and Taylor Banark won the ball near the goal in a scrum. Banark then passed to Kaysee Lewis who put it in the net.

About five minutes later, Madalynn Doughty scored on an assist from Martinez to make it 2-0.

The score stayed the same until there was six minutes left in the first half when Doughty scored again and it remained 3-0 for the rest of the half.

"We knew we needed to connect more on passes and connect better on and off the ball," Kaminski said.

Maggie Bianco got loose 10 minutes into the second half and scored to make it 4-0.

From there, the rout was on. Freshman Alex Neff scored two of the next four goals and Banark added another one, while Marissa Ramos scored the other goal.

The competition raises for the Bulldogs on Wednesday when they host Millard West in the district final.

"We know that no matter what team we play, we're playing a good team that has played against other good teams in the state," said Kaminski. "We know that we'll be in a tight game where one goal can make the difference."
