DRAGONS DOWN CUBS
MADISON — Alyssa Wright had a hat trick and an assist as Silver Creek bounced back from its season-opening loss to Floyd Central with a 6-2 triumph over host Madison on Saturday afternoon.
“I thought we came out and played well after Tuesday’s loss to FC,” Dragons coach Patrick Anderson said. “We had a few things go against us in that game but everything seemed to go our way Saturday. After we settled in we were able to connect good passes and give ourselves multiple scoring chances. Our center midfielders and forwards played well together in the middle and moved the ball like we’ve been working on. That allowed our outside midfielders to get more involved, which didn’t happen against FC. Our defense did a great job of working as a unit and limited their chances to score.”
Anna Wright added two goals and an assist for Silver Creek, which built a 4-0 halftime lead.
Sabrina Schmidt netted the Dragons’ other goal while Jordan Leddon, Meredith Antz and Lill Clarke added assists.
Silver Creek (1-1) plays at Bedford North Lawrence at 6 p.m. Thursday.
