Senior Bellmont soccer player Meghan Schueler made history Monday night when she played all 11 positions in a single game during Bellmont's 6-0 win over New Haven.
Scheuler, who played defense her freshman and sophomore years, converted to midfield and forward last season scoring 12 goals, but on Monday the senior started the game at right wingback where she played the first 10 minutes. She then shifted to center midfield and helped her team to to two quick scores.
The first was a superb cross from junior Kylee Beery that found Andrea Fruchte waiting to fire the ball into goal. The second score came after a triangulated play that started with an Alyssa Strickler pass to junior Courtney Sherer who crossed to Ally Tussing who finished with a stellar strike into the back of the net.
Meanwhile Scheuler had cycled through both central midfield spots and now found herself at left outside defense, where she finished the opening half. The Squaws did add a third goal before the half when Strickler once again fed the ball to Scherer. This time, however, the junior defender took the shot herself burying it in the top left corner.
The second half saw even more pressure from Bellmont with Scheuler and Fruchte now paired as the forwards. Ten minutes into the half, Scheuler continued her journey shifting to left wing midfield then right forward. Minutes later Tussing added her second goal of the night, tapping in the rebound from a rocket shot by Amberly Gutierrez that hit the post. Later, Fruchte scored her second goal of the night on an assist from goal keeper Tori Smitley.
