Pacers stay hot with win over Wildcats


Gazette Staff



The Delaware Hayes girls soccer team continued its solid stretch of play Tuesday, winning its third straight game with a 5-0 decision over host Westerville South.

The Pacers, who bumped their overall record to 9-1 and league mark to a perfect 4-0 with the win, spread the wealth on the offensive end. Their five goals came from five different players as Ava Bruns, Aubrey Griner, Maddy Green, McKenzie Hayes and Alyssa Griner all found the back of the net.

The defense, meanwhile, took care of the rest, holding the Wildcats without a single shot on goal for the entire match.

Next up, Hayes is slated to take on Olentangy Orange in non-league action Tuesday in Delaware.
