The North Hagerstown girls soccer team scored three goals in each half to romp to a 6-0 victory over South Hagerstown on Thursday evening at School Stadium in MVAL Piedmont action.

Alluka Ogle-Moore led No. 1 North Hagerstown's scoring parade with two goals while teammates Maria Borland, Carlie Colella, Caroline Kreiger and Katie Ritter all added one each.

"I thought we played exceptionally well," North Hagerstown coach Rick Aleshire said. "We started slowly but we put some points on the board and took care of things. They're a lot better team than the one we faced earlier in the season."

Borland opened the scoring in the 14th minute, followed by Ogle-Moore and Kreiger scoring 20 seconds apart, to give North (8-1, 1-0) a 3-0 halftime lead.

Colella's direct kick took a high bounce over South goalie Alisha French in the opening three minutes of the second half and North coasted the remainder of the way.

"It's nice to get a win," Ogle-Moore said. "The weather was definitely different from what we had been used to. I think it took us awhile to get going."

The North defense smothered the South offensive attack in the second 40 minutes but Rebels coach Scott Burhman still appreciated the overall effort.

"I thought we played hard tonight. We're an extremely young team (South started four freshmen), but we're improving each time out," he said. "We had some breakdowns but we played with a lot of heart and didn't give up."

South (2-9, 0-3) hosts Boonsboro on Tuesday while North visits Walkersville on Saturday.

"With three games this week, it was good to use many players tonight," Aleshire said. "You need depth to be successful. And I thought everyone contributed."

North goalkeepers Lindsey Irving and Kreiger - who went into goal for the last 15 minutes - shared the shutout.
