WALKERTOWN — The Mount Airy girls soccer team ran right past Walkertown on Thursday, earning a 10-1 victory over the Wolfpack. Mount Airy has now outscored Walkertown 22-1 this season.
Six different Lady Bears found their names on the scoresheet. Baylee Greenwood led the way with four goals. Jessica Miranda found the back of the net on two occasions, while Allie Sechrist, Kora Ledezma, Anna Contreras and Ailia Halpern each chipped in a goal.
Ledezma also chipped in two assists to go with her goal.
Halpern is the senior goalie for Mount Airy, but Lady Bear coach Will Hurley moved the four-year player out to the striker position, hoping she could register the first goal of her career. She capitalized on her opportunity and rewarded her coach.
Even with all of the firepower Mount Airy’s offense supplied on Thursday, Coach Hurley was most impressed with the performance from one of his defenders.
“We always have a different kid that steps up, and tonight Gabi Troutman just really did a nice job,” Hurley said. “Walkertown has gotten a little better since we last played them and were really pressing up the field, but Gabi handled everything and was a rock.”
With four matches remaining, three from the Northwest Conference, Mount Airy is still fighting with East Surry for second place in the league. The Lady Bears will continue that pursuit on Tuesday when runaway champions Bishop McGuinness come to town.
