Austin Krise netted a hat trick Monday to lead Philipsburg-Osceola to a 4-0 shut out of Central.
Krise scored twice in the first half, with assists from Andy Gray and Zach Ament, and then raced through the Scarlet Dragon defense 16:19 into the second half to complete the hat trick. An own goal with an errant pass back to Central keeper Caleb Stern accounted for the other goal.
Mitch Winters made six saves for the shutout victory.
“We’re back on track,” P-O coach Shawn Inlow said. “Our defense has been really solid lately. We’re starting to get our game. We stateed slow but we stopped inflicting wounds on ourselves.”
