Until Friday, Shoreham-Wading River junior midfielder Alex Kuhnle had been a vital playmaker for the Wildcats with seven assists.

That was before she put on quite a show, scoring her first two goals of the season in a 2-0 win over host Mount Sinai in a Suffolk County League VI girls soccer match.

Kuhnle gave the first-place Wildcats (6-1, 4-0) all the scoring they needed in the seventh minute, firing a shot that hit the crossbar and bounded into the net for a 1-0 advantage over the Mustangs (3-3, 1-3).

She then demonstrated her dribbling skills by zig-zagging through the Mount Sinai defense to double the lead in the 20th minute.

Sophomore goalkeeper Lydia Kessel recorded the shutout, the team’s fifth this season.
