Ava Bertone set the tone with a goal midway through the first half and the Olentangy Liberty girls soccer team only added to its edge from there, rolling to a 7-0 non-league win over visiting Thomas Worthington Thursday night in Powell.

Morgan Mahan followed up Bertone’s tally with one of her own two minutes later.

Already up 3-0 at the break, Liberty all but sealed the deal in the first 10 minutes of the second half. Ava Niemeier scored off a cross before Jazlyn Brooker’s corner kick bounced off a defender and into the back of the net to balloon the edge to 5-0 with 30 minutes to play.
