Lady Bulldogs keep biting back

Published 12:00 am Friday, October 14, 2005

After going winless in their first eight games this season, King’s Fork continued to turn things around Wednesday, roaring past visiting Indian River 4-0 for the Lady Bulldogs’ second-consecutive win and first shutout. Whitney Witt scored two goals in the victory.

&uot;We’ve really stepped up our intensity and our want to win,&uot; Witt said. &uot;We don’t want to be known as a team that’s easy to beat; we want respect.&uot;

Though Fork held a 24-6 shooting advantage, River kept them out of the goal for the first eight minutes until Ashley Pinzon put the Lady Bulldogs on the board with 16:34 to go. Witt whacked in an assist from Kelsey Ewell at the seven-minute mark, and Mary Rose gave her another five minutes into the second half. Catie Dugan scored Fork’s last goal with 10 minutes remaining.
