The King’s Fork High School girls’ soccer team had a rough start to the season but lately has been engineering one blowout win after another, the most recent of which came at home on Wednesday. The Lady Bulldogs marched to an easy 6-0 win over Deep Creek High School.

They got two goals apiece from sophomore Logan Montel, junior Lindsay Ransome and freshman Cydney Nichols. Nichols now has a total of nine goals, five games into the season.

King’s Fork led 3-0 at halftime, but made it 6-0 about 15 minutes into the second half.

Citing the deciding factor in the game via text message, KF head coach Jason Stump stated it was “our team’s depth, diversity and desire to grow as a whole unit and bring pride to our school.”

“Our goals were shared by three players but supported by a team effort,” he stated. “And the entire defensive effort has held the last three opponents to only one goal compared to our 18 goals.”

He highlighted freshman Skylar Wall for anchoring the defense, but stated, “The whole defensive unit is really starting to take shape and work more efficiently.”
