The Webster City girls soccer team used an early Janey Putney goal to run past Wright County Soccer here Monday night, 6-0.

Four first half goals provided the Lynx with plenty of support, as Putney and Jillian Symens both had two goals. Sandra Fuentes-Cruz and Mia Hansen each found the back of the net.

Perez added two assists with Symens and Kamey Stanley picking up one each.

“The girls set the tone right out of the gate in the first half with an early goal from Janey Putney,” WCHS head coach Kristine Mason said. “We possessed, we played to feet and we combined better than we have all season so far.

“Janey, Jill, and Jayme made some beautiful combinations in the final third that resulted in several opportunities that we were able to convert. These three continue to improve technically and with their movement off the ball. That’s what keeps creating chances for us.”

Fuentes-Cruz and Hansen came off the bench to record their goals, giving Webster City more depth to work with as the season progresses.

“You love to see players like Sandra and Mia coming off the bench making an immediate impact and getting goals in the back of the net,” Mason said. “These two bring a good shift in energy when we need to make a change and I’ll continue to look to them to be difference makers.

“Julia Griep stepped in for Heidi Mendoza who was out sick and played her heart out. We’re really pleased with how much she continues to step up.”

The Lynx return to action on Thursday at Iowa Falls-Alden.
