• Dragons whip Presentation: Olivia Scarbrough had a hat trick and Alexis Barnett scored twice as Silver Creek started the 2013 campaign with an 8-0 win over Presentation Academy (Ky.).
Barnett got the scoring started for the Dragons, who led 5-0 at the half. Scarbrough scored twice in the first half along with goals by Bailey Miller and Alexis Cook.
Barnett, Scarbrough and Lauren Cunliffe added early goals in the second half for Creek.
The Dragons had 16 shots on goal compared to two for Presentation.
“We played very well for our first game, but [Presentation was] short-handed,” Silver Creek coach Patrick Anderson said. “Our defense did a great job of limiting their scoring chances, and our midfield controlled the ball allowing us to maintain possession. Our forwards really worked well together and attacked when they could.”
NEXT: Silver Creek (1-0) at South Ripley, Saturday.
