The penalty kick goals were recorded by Katie Campbell, Barley and Megan Ridens.

Shayna Henderson was in goal and made five saves.

Greenville participated in the Route 66 Tournament last week, playing three games.

The Lady Comets won on Saturday, edging North Mac 3-2. It was once again 1-1 after regulation play. Emma Veith recorded the goal and Peppler was credited with the assist.

The GHS team won when three players converted penalty kicks. They were Bearley, Ainsley Olson and Georgia Sussenbach.

Earlier in the tournament, the Lady Comets suffered two tough 1-0 losses, falling to Carlinville and Auburn. In the Auburn contest, Henderson made eight saves in goal.

The GHS girls are playing in another tournament this week at Litchfield.
