Pisgah girls soccer was dominant in its first win of the season Monday, topping Madison 9-0 at Pisgah Memorial Stadium.

The Bears scored six goals in the first half, with four of them coming in the first seven minutes, and tacked on three more in the second for the mercy-rule victory.

“We played a good game and started about as strong as you can start,” said head coach Joe Pinkston. “Madison lost eight seniors that they really relied on in the playoff season last year and are in a bit of a rebuilding year. They have a good coach and they will be playing better soccer when we see them again later in the season. We’re always happy to get a win and hopefully we can keep this momentum building as we go forward.”

Senior Haylee Hall led Pisgah with a whopping four goals. Sophomore Starling Inabnitt potted two, and junior Haley Gruner, freshman Kennedy Barker and sophomore Alyssa Bridges each tallied once. Inabnitt added three assists, while Gruner Hall, freshman Lauren Dietz and freshman Jimena Andrade each added one.

Senior goalkeeper Stephanie Germaine, who was not called on to make a save, pitched a shutout. and the Bears’ defense pitched a shutout.

Pisgah will hit the road to face Swain County Wednesday.
