HUBER HEIGHTS — The Wayne girls soccer team improved to 4-1-0 Wednesday night at home with an 8-0 shut out against visiting Greenville, marking their third shutout of the season. The scoring was evenly spread among eight separate players.
The locals built a 5-0 halftime lead. Coach Vic Trapani said the squad started out a little slow before getting into a groove seven minutes into the game and opened up the scoring, out shooting Greenville 26-2.
“In both halves…, every goal was by a different person, so it was kind of nice,” said Trapani. “A lot of people contributed — it was across the board, everybody tried to do their job and it was kind of nice to see eight different people get on the sheet there and get a goal.”
Sommer Donnelly had the first two assists in the game, aiding Bree Grewe and Randa Richards on the first two goals, respectively. Donnelly then put Wayne up 3-0 on an assist from sophomore midfielder Ashley Ruble. Ruble then scored with assistance from Chiara Baker. Mikaela Henline, a sophomore JV team member, scored the final goal of the half on an assist from Armani Dortch.
In the second half, freshman defender/forward Destiny Bohanon scored on an assist from Baker. Dortch then scored with an assist from senior captain Heleigh Russell. Baker, a senior captain, recorded the final goal of the night on an assist from sophomore JV player Kylie Tilton.
“Overall, it was a consistent effort,” said Trapani. “They finished as a team. A lot of different people got on the final score sheet and we kind of like to see that everybody had a chance to be successful and a lot of people were.”
Trapani said he is pleased with the 4-1 start on the season which he called a “great start.”
‘Hopefully, we’ll keep it rolling against Troy this Saturday,” he said. “They’re a tough team and we’d like to stick one to them.”
