Scoring a goal in each half, No. 5 seed Kendall blanked host No. 4 Northstar 2-0 this afternoon in the quarterfinal round of the Section V Class D1 girls soccer playoffs.

Kayla Summers and Hailee Mitchell each scored their third goal of the season to provide the offense for the Lady Eagles while Hannah Ulmen made 3 saves in goal to earn the shutout.

Summers scored what proved to be the game winner 13 minutes into the first half off an assist from Taylor ReQua.

Mitchell then tacked on an insurance goal just 10 minutes later off a corner kick by ReQua.

Kendall, which is now 13-5, will next face the winner of the No. 1 Wheatland-Chili vs. No. 9 Naples semi in the semifinals on Wednesday.
