Richards, Moya lead Wildcats to victory
STRASBURG — Nina Richards scored the first two goals of her career and Warren County girls soccer teammate Lisette Moya added two assists as the Wildcats swamped Strasburg 4-0 on Tuesday night in Bull Run District play at Glenn Proctor Field.
All the Wildcats’ (9-5 Bull Run District/overall) goals came in the first half.
“That’s good for me,” said Richards, a junior. “Most likely I’m working to make assists. I never thought it would happen, but glad it did.”
Richards and her teammates came out aggressively after the start of the match was postponed twice due to lightening in the area.
For Moya, her two assists gave her three in two nights. The ‘Cats knocked off Madison County 3-2 in Bull Run District play Monday as she scored two goals and enabled another.
The Wildcats’ scoring machine, freshman Shauna Sayers, scored her 10th goal of the season off a Moya assist.
Courtney L’Amoreaux also added an assist on Moya’s score, the last of the night. L’Amoreaux has accounted for seven goals and 10 assists this year. She set a single-season assist record (13) for Warren County in 2014 and currently is chasing the school’s all-time assist mark.
Warren County coach Michael Carpenter said he saw no letdown in his team, though Strasburg fell to 0-12-1 district/overall with the setback.
“It’s a district game and Strasburg always plays us tough,” said Carpenter.
Strasburg’s standout was goalkeeper Haley Bischoff, who made 14 stops — seven in each half.
“We’re improving,” Rams coach Katerine Klus said. “Little things that may not show on the field; but we’re getting better. I think it will show up in the years to come.”
