MINGO JUNCTION - The Edison girls soccer team continually put pressure on the Indian Creek defense Wednesday at Muth Field and it resulted in a 7-0 win.
"We still have to work on our touch and playing together," said Wildcats coach Jeremy Angelo. "When you're a young team it takes some time to get everything clicking and moving.
"We still have to learn when to dribble and when not to dribble.
TOWARD THE GOAL — Edison’s Savannah Snyder splits Indian Creek defensive players Shyla O’Dell, left, and Rebecca Vandine during Wednesday’s match at Muth Field. Snyder was one of six Wildcats players to score a goal in the 7-0 victory.

"We keep telling them, feet first, then look at space. If you just kick it to nobody every time, at some point it's coming right back at you and a whole bunch of them are coming."
Nhung Tran led the offense with a pair of goals. Also scoring were Jordan Byrley, Savannah Snyder, Kim Judy, Erin Watkins and Sam Saccareccia. Carissa Myler, Desiree McGee and Maryanna Sutton collected assists.
Shelbi Marquis had one save and Morgan O'Brien two for Edison.
Indian Creek's Charlotte Wysong grabbed eight saves. Cami Price had one and Megan Anderson did not make a save.
"There's a lot of teaching going on," said Redskins coach Jerry Emley. "We just have to play better as a team. That's a hard thing to get across. That will come. We just have to keep working at it.
"On an individual basis they have to bring their best game and, as a team, work together."
The Wildcats have five seniors, all of whom are captains. Two of them, Brittany Furbee and Anna Ingram, are hurt and watched from the bench.
"Our captains are starting to talk a lot more, especially with two of them hurt," Angelo said. "They're a lot more outgoing, which is good on one point, but bad on another (because they are hurt).
"They are sitting on the bench and seeing what happens out there. At halftime, they did most of the talking, not me. They were the most vocal and I think it helped.
"We buckled down and played."
