Potvin's four goals spark Lakota West

        Just two days ago, Lakota West midfielder Lauren Potvin inquired about returning to the striker position.

        “I told Lauren it was just a matter of getting her the ball,” Firebirds coach Tara Schafer-Kalkhoff said Tuesday. “Tonight we got it to her, and look what happened.”

        Potvin scored a school single-game record four goals to lead the Firebirds to a 6-0 victory over neighborhood rival Lakota East at Hopewell Elementary.

        Megan Connelly had one goal and one assist, and Ashley Hadley scored a goal and had two assists.

        “Everything was clicking,” said Potvin, who scored her first goal 2:41 into the game.

        As the only returning starter from Lakota West's 1999 Division I state championship team, Potvin knew she had to take over the leadership role.

        “No one said anything to me about leadership,” Potvin said. “I knew I was the only player back and we needed a leader.”

        As a striker the past two seasons, Potvin had 15 goals and eight assists. She had one goal and one assist going into Tuesday's game.

        Goalie Stephanie Comisar picked up her third consecutive shutout.
