The Hazard Lady Bulldogs’ soccer team hosted the Middlesboro Lady Yellow Jackets last week. The Lady Bulldogs had their way in the game, scoring five goals in each half to pull off the mercy rule.

Everything the Lady Bulldogs did in the opening moments went well. Hazard scored three goals before three minutes could come off the clock. At the half, the Lady Bulldogs were up 5-0.

Little changed in the second half as Hazard ran through the Middlesboro defense. Again, the Lady Bulldogs quickly scored five goals. This coupled with the defensive shutout ended the game early (it was Hannah Webb’s second consecutive shutout).

Drew Baker and Carmen Shepherd each had a hat-trick in the game.

Hazard stats: Goals: Amanda Asher 2, Drew Baker 4, McKenzie Bowling 1 and Carmen Shepherd 3. Assists: Amanda Asher 1, Drew Baker 1, McKenzie Bowling 1, Tiffany Combs 1, Keshia Hamblin 3 and Carmen Shepherd 2.
