Once the floodgates opened, the Westview Lady Chargers poured it on against the visiting Gibson County Lady Pioneers, winning 12-0 in District 14 A-AA soccer action Tuesday night at the MTD Soccer Complex.
Westview blasted the back of the net for nine shots in the final 40 minutes to end its regular season with a 8-5-1 record. The victory marked the final regular season game for a pair of WHS seniors — Maley Mount and Emily Belote.
“I hate to see them go after four years of contributing to the team. I hope we’ll have a few more games with them. They’ve been an asset to the team,” Westview head coach Stan Vickers said.
Westview, the second seed, will next take on Peabody in the district tournament. The two teams will tangle at 6 on Tuesday night in Dyersburg.
Belote put an exclamation mark on the regular season by scoring a career-high five goals in the win, while freshman Megan Householder notched the first two goals of her Westview career.
The Lady Chargers were frustrated in the first half, missing several chances to pad its lead. Belote broke the ice nine minutes into the action, coming free in front to lift a hard high shot under the cross bar.
Lucy Redmond fed Belote from the end line for the second goal 15 minutes later.
With 7:30 to play in the first half, an Alexis Rigazio centering pass led to a Melissa Johnson goal for a 3-0 halftime advantage for Westview.
In the second half, Gibson County had trouble with goal kicks as the Westview forwards repeatedly picked them off and fired shots. In the first two minutes of the second half, Belote added her third goal.
Evelyn Daniel assisted Johnson on her second goal, a beautiful long shot over the keeper’s hands for a 5-0 lead.
Nada Hussein added one of her three assists on Nour Haddad’s goal, Westview’s sixth of the night.
Belote booted the next two to push the WHS lead to 8-0.
Redmond added the ninth on an aggressive sliding shot.
Rigazio put Westview into double digits in scoring by following a shot that caromed off the crossbar.
Amy Spence and Marianela D’Aprile recorded the assists on Householders goals to close out scoring in Westview’s 12-0 whipping of Gibson County.
