WESTON – Madison Sazama scored twice and goalie Makenna Kampmann saved all seven shots that came her way as D.C. Everest shut out Marshfield 4-0 in a WIAA Division 1 girls soccer regional semifinal Tuesday at D.C. Everest Middle School.
No. 2 seed D.C. Everest (14-4-1) will host No. 3 Hudson in a regional final Saturday at D.C. Everest Middle School. Game time is to be announced.
The game also served as the Wisconsin Valley Conference finale. D.C. Everest finishes off its conference championship season a perfect 12-0.
Zongshia Lo started the scoring at the 18:10 mark, and Sazama added a pair of goals before halftime as the Evergreens took control.
Jenna Check added a goal off an assist from Sazama 13:10 into the second half to finish off the scoring for D.C. Everest.

“It was a great effort on one of the top forwards in the state,” Marshfield coach Steve Lindner said. “The entire team played with high intensity and urgency, and that is all we can ask of these ladies. The effort was there and we had at least three point-blank shots, but we just could not finish. It was not to be, but I am so proud of the entire team. It is a close-knit team and one that did so many things well this season and showed much improvement overall.”
