The Lady Cavaliers got going early and often against the Warriorette soccer team during Monday’s District 6AAA contest.
The Cookeville team scored twice in the first minute of the contest and never looked back on the way to the dominating 8-0 win over White County High School.
Cookeville controlled the opening kick off taking the ball straight down the field and scored in the opening seconds of the contest. The Lady Cavaliers immediately stole the ensuing kick off from the Warriorettes and put the ball back in the net in the first minute of the game taking the 2-0 advantage.
In the 12th minute of the game, Cookeville ran the lead to 3-0. With 16 minutes left, they stretched the lead to 4-0 and then added a fifth just one minute later. Still, the Lady Cavaliers were not done. With two minutes left in the half, they moved the score to 6-0, which would be the count at the intermission.
Cookeville picked up where they left off starting the second half with a goal in the second minute of the period. That stretched the advantage to a more than insurmountable lead of 7-0.
The only other goal of the game came with 15 minutes left making the final score of 8-0.
The loss dropped the Warriorettes to 3-7 overall and leaves them still with just one win in the district race (1-4). WCHS returns to action Thursday at Coffee County. The Lady Raiders defeated the Warriorettes 3-1 in the first meeting between the two this season back in August.
