Hurricane doesn't lack confidence, so the Redskins weren't too worried after a scoreless opening half.
Three different players scored in the second half for Hurricane as it dominated host Sissonville 3-0 Tuesday evening. A crowd of about 200 attended the girls high school soccer matchup at Joe Sawyers Field.
Brittany Minor opened the scoring for Hurricane, taking a pass and dribbling inside the penalty-box area for an uncontested shot and a 1-0 lead with 18:07 left in the second half.
Audrey Barber scored off an assist from Abby Watson with 14:28 to go and Watson chipped in an unassisted goal at the 7:52 mark to finish off the victory.
"I think we all realized we all know what to do to beat this team,'' said Watson of her team's second-half surge. "[Sissonville has] three in the back and we have two up front and just playing the splits.
"We're playing really good together. We've got really good chemistry on and off the field. We've just been coming out ready to play.''
The Redskins (4-0) lost three starters from last year's team and moved sophomore Hannah Thompson into the net, but hasn't missed a beat. Callie McClanahan, last year's starting goalie, now plays in the field.
"So far she's impressing us,'' Watson said of Thompson, who didn't face a shot on goal Tuesday. "Callie's helping us a lot on the field. We're doing what we're supposed to do. We know what everyone expects of us, nothing less than states.''
Hurricane, which has surrendered just one goal this season, kept Sissonville senior Lydia Murray - who netted her 100th career goal recently - in check.
