HAGERSTOWN — Taylor Cline had six goals and an assist to lead Smithsburg to a 15-5 win over South Hagerstown in an MVAL Antietam match at School Stadium.

“I’m pretty happy,” Cline said. “I just wanted to make some good passes and give everybody a chance to score. I wanted it to be a team effort.”

Cline got the Leopards on the scoreboard just 1 minute, 10 seconds into the match and started the snowball rolling. Smithsburg (1-2) led 11-3 at halftime.

“We just had to play our game and not play down,” Cline said. “It is a good thing that we got a big lead early in the game. That enabled us to give a lot of people some playing time. Everybody did well for us.”

Nadya Gutierrez, Dominique Dilandro and Jamie Ewing collected two goals apiece for Smithsburg. Lauren Parks, Janice Edwards and Emma Gerhold had one goal apiece, while Emily Seward had one assist for the Leopards.

“I thought we played a very good game,” Smithsburg coach Cheryl Dietrich said. “We had a lot of ball control and we passed the ball well.”

Anna Blevins scored two goals for South Hagerstown (0-3). Heather Callahan, Courtney Jenkins and Lexi Turano added one goal apiece for the Rebels.

“We were a little unorganized in the beginning,” South Hagerstown coach Bruce Buhrman said. “We made some adjustments at halftime. We had a much better second half.”
