The Lady Bears scored the last five goals to beat North Wilkes 6-1 in soccer Wednesday.
The Lady Vikings tied the game 1-1 with a goal midway through the first half.
That would be the visiting teams only score, however, as the Bears controlled the midfield.
Andi Moore led the attack with three goals. Marissa Petri had two goals and an assist.
Jordan Jackson, the Northwest player of the year in tennis, scored one goal off an assist from Vanessa Armenta.
Armenta, who was instrumental in winning the time of possession battle, had two assists on the night.
Younger sister Kimberly Lachino had one assist.
Another tennis player, Bree Hughes, added an assist.
With frigid temperatures and a harsh wind, the Bears had trouble making accurate shots on goal.
Coach Will Hurley said his team missed 27 shots. Some of those tries were very close. Moore had a ball bounce off the left post. Armenta had a hard shot go over the keeper’s head, but just missed over the crossbar.
Bree Hughes and Jessica Escutia played well up front, said Hurley.
“Maria Rodriguez had an awesome game, feeding the ball to Vanessa and Marissa,” he said.
Yuri Madigral also had a good game, he added.
The Bears improved to 6-0.
Also, Hurley noted, for the first time in the history of girls soccer, the Bears have a team ranked in the top 10 in the state.
The coaches’ poll has the Bears ranked seventh for 1A.
The Bears are home again today, hosting South Stokes.
