Perseverance paid off for the South Fork Cubs during a homecoming game on Friday.
After 14 straight losses to start the season, it all came together for the Cubs in a 5-0 win over Fort Bragg in Miranda.
A young South Fork roster that features just two seniors and one junior has been steadily improving and knocking on the door the past few games, two of which they lost by just a single goal.
“We played like a team,” South Fork head coach Ann Constantino said.
Freshman Hannah Savio had a breakout game and scored four of her team’s goals, two in each half, with Makenzie Brewer also finding the back of the net.
Cadence Young assisted on a pair of goals, including a nice through ball to set up Brewer, who showed a lot of composure and tucked her shot inside the back post from a difficult angle.
The team’s two seniors, Young and McConnell, were playing their final home games for the team and both were outstanding, as was influential freshman Genesis Medrano in midfield.
The Cubs return to league play at Del Norte on Tuesday.
