KINGWOOD – After starting the season 0-2, the Buckhannon-Upshur soccer Lady Bucs have posted three straight shutouts in three wins outscoring their opponents by a 16-0 score in those three games.

Their latest victim was the Preston Knights, who dropped a 6-0 decision to the Lady Bucs Thursday evening.

Five different Lady Bucs managed to get into the scoring.

The Lady Bucs set the tone of the game early going up 2-0 just four minutes into the contest.

Catherine Oliveto had the first goal of the night as she took a throw in from Cameron Zuliani and scored from nine yards out, and just two minutes later, Ashley Catlin took a pass from the left wing from Miranda Greene and scored giving the Lady Bucs their 2-0 lead.

Hannah Boyles scored her first of two goals when she played a throw in from Grace Queen and scored from 18 yards out making it a 3-0 contest.

Sheridan Phillips ended the first-half scoring with a goal in the 36th minute after scoring on a pass from Ava Hollen.

That treated the Lady Bucs to a 4-0 lead at the break.

Boyles played a pass from the corner of the field by Queen and found the back of the net in the 45th minute to up the B-U lead to 5-0.

Lexi Kelley wrapped up the Lady Buc scoring with a goal in the 74th minute finding the back of the net off of a corner kick by Zuliani.

The Lady Bucs held a massive 22-1 lead in shots-on-goal and an 8-0 margin in corner kicks.

B-U keeper Kyndal Davis made one save on the only shot she saw while Preston goalie Kinley Manko turned away 16 shots.
