Lady Wolverines soccer dominates Mountain Heritage 6-0

Published 8:42 am Friday, April 15, 2011

On Monday, April 11, the Polk County Wolverines varsity soccer team played host to Mountain Heritage.
The game was over before it started as Polk jumped out to an early lead and cruised on to an easy 6-0 victory with subs playing the majority of the game.
Brittany Phipps, who had two goals in this one, came out and scored her first goal less than five minutes into the game.
This goal was followed up by a goal by Peyton Habenicht who also had two goals on the night. Her first goal came on a header off a corner, which is becoming more and more routine for Habenicht. She said she’s “really glad to see the practice paying off” as this is her second game in a row with a goal off a header, that came off a corner. Phipps added her second goal to give Polk a dominant lead at the half 3-0.
Polk continued their dominance of the game as the Lady Wolverines went on to control the second half. Richelle Sciuva scored, with an assist by Phipps.
The scoring was not limited to upperclassmen, as freshman Ellese Cash added a goal of her own to put the Wolverines up 5-0.
That was when Peyton Habenicht got her final chance to tack on another goal as a Mountain Heritage defender mistakenly picked up the ball in the box, giving her a free kick. She didn’t miss her chance, putting the ball well out of reach of the keeper to hammer home the last nail in Mountain Heritage’s coffin, 6-0.
Polk’s next home game is Tuesday, April 18.
