The Delaware Hayes girls soccer team hasn’t lost a game since the calendar flipped to September, most recently notching its seventh straight win with a 3-0 decision over visiting Dublin Scioto on Thursday night.

Madeline Bruns led the charge, playing a part in all three goals.

Addie Reed broke the scoring seal off a feed from Bruns and, after Bruns made it 2-0 with an unassisted tally of her own, she assisted on a goal from Elise Buckerfield to smooth out the scoring summary.

Josie DeRosa anchored the defense, collecting five saves en route to the shutout, while Scioto keeper Reese Kinney finished with 22 saves in the setback.

The Pacers, who improved to 10-2 overall and 5-1 in OCC-Capital Division action with the win, have outscored opponents 24-2 over the course of their winning streak.

Most recently, Hayes blanked St. Francis DeSales 3-0 on Tuesday and rolled to a 5-1 win over Hilliard Bradley last Saturday.

Ellie Roberson had a pair of goals in the win over the Stallions. Adrionna Brown also found the back of the net while Bruns had two helpers.

DeRosa, meanwhile, collected three saves en route to the first of her back-to-back shutouts.

Next up, Hayes will look to keep rolling against visiting Clear Fork Tuesday night at 7:15 p.m.
