Nonleague match

Team Score

CORBETT — The Corbett girls soccer team scored twice in each half to sprint past Yamhill-Carlton 4-0 in a battle of unbeaten 4A foes Tuesday night.

The Cardinals took charge before intermission when Mally McCowen curved a corner kick to the front of the goal, and teammate Sarah McMichael rushed forward and booted the ball out of mid-air past the keeper for a 2-0 lead.

The visiting Tigers tried to get back into contention when Kiersti LeClair made a deep run down the left sideline. But Corbett goalie Hannah Lee saw her coming, left the line and swooped down low to cover the ball before the striker to connect for a shot.

The Cardinals would net two more before the final whistle sounded with Rhiley Fritz leading the charge with a goal in each half.

Corbett (2-0-0) plays at Banks on Thursday before starting the Tri-Valley schedule Tuesday night in Gladstone.
