The North Hagerstown girls soccer team remained undefeated by blanking South Hagerstown 6-0 on Thursday night in an MVAL Antietam match at School Stadium.

Sophomore Alluka Ogle-Moore scored two goals, while four other players scored one each for the No. 1 Hubs (11-0, 5-0).

"We know that we are on a run," North coach Rick Aleshire said. "The girls are working hard, practicing hard and are focused. We have got some girls that can score. We are not just a one- or two-person scoring team. We have got a lot of weapons. You don't know who to watch. We have got some technical players at all positions that understand the game. We can be a threat from anywhere on the field."

The Hubs got on the scoreboard in the 12th minute on an unassisted goal by Hannah Barton.

The Hubs got another goal four minutes later when Ogle-Moore scored through the middle on an assist by Maria Borland.


Allie Snyder's unassisted goal through the middle in the 29th minute gave the Hubs a 3-0 halftime lead.

Just 57 seconds into the second half, Stephanie Borland went through the middle for a goal on an assist by Ogle-Moore to put the Hubs up, 4-0. Less than two minutes later, Courtney Whorten scored through the middle on an assist by Stephanie Borland.

The Hubs scored for the final time in the 76th minute when Ogle Moore connected for her second goal on an assist by Snyder.

Brittany Shadrach made 16 saves for South (3-8-1, 1-6-1).

"Brittany Shadrach did a nice job at goalkeeper for them," Aleshire said. "She is one of the best goalkeepers in the area. She stops a lot of shots."

The Hubs outshot the Rebels, 30-3.

"We knew going in that this was not going to be an easy game for us," South coach Bruce Buhrman said. "We know that North is an extremely accomplished team and executes very well. We knew that we were going to play defense much of the night. I think our defense did an incredible job holding them to six goals. Again, Brittany Shadrach did a good job of saving."

North Hagerstown won the JV game, 4-0.
