ELKINS — The Elkins High School Lady Tigers remained unbeaten Tuesday as the team cruised to a 4-1 victory over South Harrison in girls varsity soccer action.

“We came out with a good pace to the game,” EHS coach Scott Cutright said. “We had a really good first half.

“There was an injury to a South Harrison player in the second half and I think the momentum kind of switched a little bit after that.

“We had a difficult time trying to get things back. Once they were awarded a penalty kick, it became a little bit of a closer game,” Cutright said.

“It was good for our girls to put two more quick goals in and put the game out of reach.”

The Lady Tigers were the first to light up the scoreboard when Susan Riggleman found the back of the net at the two-minute mark on an assist from Isabella Karlen.

Elkins scored again with 17 minutes remaining in the half when Andrea Gorosadel scored on an assist from Sofia Triplett.

After the intermission, South Harrison scored on a penalty kick to make the score 2-1.

Later, EHS would convert their own penalty kick when Karlen put one past the goal keeper to make the score 3-1.

Elkins added the final blow with just over 3 minutes left in the game when Triplett scored on an assist from Gorosadel.

Elkins (2-0-1) is set to host Wheeling Park at 1 p.m. Saturday.
