It was a cold night for playoff soccer at Karns City, but there were plenty of hats to go around.

Breann Wood, Megan McCartney and Emily Lopresti all had hat tricks for the top-seeded Gremlins, who began the defense of their District 9 girls soccer title with a lopsided win over Clarion, 11-0, on Wednesday in the Class A quarterfinals.

Brianna Brusamonti scored the other two goals for Karns City, which will face No. 5 Elk County Catholic in the semifinals at 5 p.m. on Tuesday at Clarion University.

Karns City 1, DuBois Central Catholic 0 Spenser Myers scored the only goal just after the 60-minute mark of the match to give No. 1 Karns City a hard-fought District 9 Class A quarterfinal win at home.

Derek McElravy assisted on Myers' goal, and David Olszak recorded the shutout for Karns City. The Gremlins will face No. 4 Brockway in the semifinals at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Clarion.
