With three games in three days, the girls had a busy week, including two blowout wins against St. Joan Antida on April 16 and Wayland Academy on April 18, and an impressive performance in a loss to Wauwatosa West on April 17.
Shreya Shah, Grace Beagle, Eimile Pesch and Liz Collins all recorded at least one hat trick as BA found its offensive stride. The defense recorded two more conference shutouts and has yet to be scored on in conference (3-0-0).
On Saturday, the girls won the annual BA Bash tournament at home for the third year in a row.
In the first game against South Milwaukee, the three Blue Knights captains came up big exactly when they were needed. After being down 1-0 at halftime, Collins scored from a Pesch assist to tie the game and Ana Bayerlein made an unbelievable save with one minute left to secure a 1-1 draw.
The second game was a convincing 2-0 victory over a Winnebago team that lost only one game last year and only one so far this year. All BA defenders played well behind Ally Anderson. Pesch scored both goals to bring her BA total to 100.
BA made the championship game based on having the most points in its group. After giving up an early 0-1 lead to Mauston, the Blue Knights scored three goals, as Pesch scored twice and Collins added the third while senior Jenny Giera played a great game on defense.
