Notre Dame midfielder Tori Soutuyo has already taken command of her offense as just a sophomore.
Soutuyo displayed an uncanny ability to facilitate and score as she had a hand in every goal in a 3-2 district road win over Silverdale Baptist Tuesday.
Soutuyo juked a pair of defenders for a crisp score off her left foot for the game's first goal in the 19th minute. She then assisted on a goal by Sarah Moore for a two-goal lead.
"Tory has all the technical skills that this team needs to be successful and operate," Moore said. "She is able to see those passes before we even know they are there. She is able to juke the players and make them trip up so there is an open goal to shoot on too."
Notre Dame (2-4, 2-0 District 2, Class A East Region) maintained solid possession as Kenzie Campbell, Kassidy Barta, Riley Mroz and Soutuyo displayed solid ball movement and distribution.
"We came out ready for this game and were really motivated," said Campbell who assisted Soutuyo's glancing score off the crossbar which was ruled to pass the blue line by the official in the 60th minute for a 3-1 lead. "We are getting to where we need to be."
