Girls Soccer: North gets first win

October 08, 2012|By JACK HILL III |

HAGERSTOWN — Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is to simply use your head.

That’s the tack Morgann Wilcox took to solve North Hagerstown’s scoring problem.

The Hubs were locked in a scoreless tie with the South Hagerstown Rebels at halftime of their MVAL Antietam girls soccer match.

But in the 43rd minuute, Wilcox scored on a header off a corner kick from Sarah Troxell to break the drought and help the Hubs to a 2-0 victory over the Rebels (1-8, 0-5) on Monday night at Mike Callas Stadium.

“We have been working on that in practice,” Wilcox said. “I was just in the right place at the right time. We have had some scoreless streaks, so it was good to find the back of the net.”

It was the first win of the season for the Hubs (1-8-1, 1-3-1).

“It feels good,” Aleshire said. “The girls have been working hard night and day. I am happy that we got that monkey off of our back and got that first win.

“Any time you have a North-South game, you’re going to have the intensity. The girls want to beat each other.”

Troxell scored North’s second goal on a penalty kick in the 59th minute.

Aleshire said that the Hubs have shown improvement as the season has progressed.

“We’re pleased with the progress that we have made,” Aleshire said. “We are going to continue to work hard in practice.”

Bailey Covington, Anna Scheck and Emma Starkey each scored a goal to help North win the JV game, 3-1.
