NAHS soccer sweeps Tish. Co.
New Albany 7 Tish. County 0 (girls)
After a tough loss to Corinth last week, NAHS rebounded with a 7-0 win over Tishomingo County.
Jenna Davis opened the scoring when she converted a Kellie Skinner cross. Shelby Brown quickly followed with her first of four goals off a pass from Estefany Fernandez. Shelby’s other goals were one unassisted and two from the penalty spot.
In between the penalty shots, Fernandez took another of Skinner’s crosses finding the back of the net with a sizzling curving shot.
The ladies closed out the scoring when Callie Creekmore passed the ball to Kelsey Hodges, who put it past the keeper.
Led by Paige Zahller, Katie Luna, Randi Stevens, Carly Grisham, Jasmine Buclon and Wendy Almaguer, the New Albany defense registered their seventh shut out for the season.
The Lady ‘Dawgs are now 12-3 (3-1) on the year.
