TENNERTON – The Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School Little Lady Buc soccer team held true to their winning ways after downing West Fairmont by a 4-0 score Monday evening at the middle school.
The win raised the record of head coach Bob Greenough’s team to 5-0-1 on the season.
Harley Dean had a hat-trick for the Little Lady Bucs in the win including two first-half goals that were set up by Haley Triplett.
The first goal was a play through from the midfield area by Triplett to Dean and the second goal came off an unselfish layoff in the box from Triplett and a strong finish from Dean to the back of the net.
The Little Lady Bucs took that 2-0 lead with them into the break.
The Little Lady Bucs tacked on two more goal in the second half, one from Sidney Hollen and a third goal by Dean.
Rylen Carlyle played a cross to Hollen, who finished it off with a goal in the 40th minute and Dean controlled a ball from Kallie Perry setting up her final goal of the game.
The win gave the Little Lady Bucs a sweep over West Fairmont, as they won the opener two weeks ago by a 3-0 score.
“The second match-up of the season with West Fairmont was again competitive,” noted B-UMS head coach Bob Greenough. “Defensively, we were able to rack up another shutout holding West Fairmont to only seven shots-on-goal. which were all cleaned up by keeper Maya Garcia. We had outstanding defensive performances from Heather Carpenter, Kallie Perry, Presley Wilt, Alayna Spotloe, Reese Curry and Mallory Hughes. This group defensively does a great job keeping quality shots off our net and keeper.
The Little Lady Bucs owned a 20-7 lead in shot-on-goal and as Greenough noted, Garcia turned away seven shots for the Little Lady Bucs.
Buckhannon-Upshur was slated to play Washington Irving Tuesday and North Marion Wednesday.
They will return to action Monday as they host Robert L. Bland at 5:30 p.m.
