Area middle school roundup: CHS girls soccer team earns shutout win

Olivia Idom had the lone goal as Christian Heritage’s middle school girls soccer team beat Gladden 1-0 on Monday.

Idom’s score was assisted by Katy Stafford — who narrowly missed scoring earlier in the match when her attempt hit the crossbar — and Lexie Gowin was in goal to record the shutout, her first of the season.
