BILLINGS — Morgan Ferestad broke the Montana High School Association career goal-scoring record Saturday, netting two of Billings Central's nine tallies to bring her career total to 102. Ferestad passed Whitefish's Elizabeth Pitman, who scored 101 goals between 1998-2001.

Ferestad scored in the opening minutes of the second half to tie her with Pitman, and then scored midway through the half to put Central up 8-0 and give her sole possession of the record. The defending State A champions would go on to win 9-0. Zoie Althoff added a first half hat trick.

Ferestad set the single-season Class A scoring record last year, and also passed Allie Lucas for the most career goals in program history.

Laurel meanwhile also moved to 4-0 on the season Saturday with a 7-0 win over Missoula Loyola. Freshman Mya Maack scored two first-half goals.

Central and Laurel head back on the road next weekend to play Polson and Whitefish.
