After three straight blowout wins, the girls JV soccer team ran away with yet another early lead, this time against Northview. With an 8-0 win over Northview already under their belt, the girls came in with confidence and the expectation that they would come out with another win. They did exactly that, going up early and dominating possession en route to a 7-0 win.

In the first half, the Rangers held the majority of possession but struggled to score. Most of the times that the Rangers were looking threatening in the final third, they would force shots. These forced shots were bad shots, and this is what prevented the goals from coming in bunches. Nonetheless, the girls would go on to score three times in the first half to give the team quite a cushion. These goals would come from sophomore Ashley Bowen, who scored twice throughout the game, and freshman Claudia Folkert, who also scored twice.

The game really started to open up in the second half. Every attack for the Rangers seemed like it would end up in a goal, and the girls did not take their foot off the gas, even with the big lead. The other scorers for the team were Freshmen Olivia Bowling, Addi Tack, and Madison Wilkins. The constant pressure was beyond too much for the Wildcats, and they had very few threatening chances, especially in the second half.

After the 7-0 win, the girls move to 11-0-1 overall and 7-0 in the conference. They will take on Cedar Springs next, who played one of the toughest games an opponent has against FHC this season.
