Brainerd's Gabbie Smith recorded two goals and an assist as the Warriors defeated the St. Cloud Tech Tigers 6-0 Monday, Oct. 1 at Adamson Field in Brainerd.
Monday's win was the 18th-straight conference victory for the Warriors, who swept the season series with Tech. The Warriors topped Tech 1-0 Sept. 18.
Smith opened the scoring in the first half with a goal off an assist by Taylor Larson, followed shortly by another score assisted by Josie Kramer.
Kramer tallied a goal in the second half with the assist coming from Smith. Larson's second assist helped Kayla Bush score. Also scoring for the Warriors were Chantrelle Thayer and Olivia King.
"Tonight was a great performance and another great team win," Warriors head coach Grant Gmeinder said. "We were very happy with how we responded after a tough loss on Saturday.
"We have talked all year that the strength of our team is our depth and that showed again tonight. Molly Rudolph was great in net again, communicating and commanding our team."
