Vermaas sets scoring record as Lady Colonels' soccer blanks Darlington
The Cass girls soccer team, led by a hat-trick by Logan Vermaas, defeated visiting Darlington Wednesday 7-0 in a non-region match at Doug Cochran Stadium.
With her three goals in the game, Vermaas is now the Lady Colonels’ all-time leading goal scorer for a single season with 26 goals and Cass has three games remaining in the regular season.

Lupita Pineda scored on a direct kick and Olivia Flynn found the back of the net off an assist from Leidi Toribio as Cass took a 4-0 lead to halftime.
In the second half, Morgan DeLarm and Vermaas both scored goals. Each assisted on the other player’s goal and Victoria Torres added the Colonels’ final goal off an assist from Brittney Ochoa.
Jailyn Padilla and a strong Cass defense earned the shutout as the Lady Colonels improved to 9-6 on the season.
Cass, which has locked up a state playoff berth and the No. 3 seed from Region 7-AAAAA, will play another non-region match Friday at North Springs.
