FRANKFORT-Things have been pretty easy-going for the Crawfordsville girls' soccer team so far this season. That changed Wednesday when they met Sagamore Athletic Conference rival Frankfort on Hot Dog turf.

When the sweat dried, it was the Athenians that took a leg up in the conference with a 2-1 win.

As usual, it was Hannah Whicker that got it done on offense. She moved her season total to 13 goals in four games thanks to netting both scores Wednesday.

What was unusual was that Crawfordsville allowed a goal, their first of the season. It came quickly after Whicker's second goal, which came in the second half and made it 2-0 Athenians. Olivia Cody, who has been brilliant in goal so far, made six saves on the night.

"We never really got into our game and we struggled to create chances," head coach Brent Bokhart said. "Frankfort brought it to us with aggressiveness and we were satisfied to just react. That's definitely something we will be working on in practice. We pulled together as a team in the second half and came out with a tough conference win."

Whicker was assisted on her first goal by Karla Zapata. Reilly Dunham got the assist on the second.

The Athenians (4-0, 1-0 SAC) will play host to Benton Central on Saturday.
