BELL BUCKLE — The Cascade Lady Champions wasted no time in their season opener against the Cannon County Lions as they dropped nine goals in the net in the first half of the match to win by mercy rule with a 9-0 final.
Junior Eve Speirs opened the match with a goal in the fourth minute, and the Lady Champs never looked back.
Of the nine goals scored throughout the first half, eight of them were scored by a different player with sophomore Kelsey Shatley netting two herself.
“I am so proud of these girls,” Lady Champs head coach Wendy Williams said. “We lost seven seniors from last year, and these girls have really stepped up and shown out. They’re playing well as a team and working together.”
Cascade’s offense played relentlessly on their way to the early finish.
Controlling the ball for the majority of the first half, the Lady Champs tallied up 16 shots on goal compared to Cannon County’s two.
“We hope that this is just the beginning,” Williams said. “We have our goals set, so we hope we can continue to build off of this.”
The Lady Champs will be back in action on Tuesday for a short road trip to Webb School for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff against the Lady Feet.
