Girls’ soccer shuts out Astronaut 8-0

Junior midfielder Maci Pekmezian scored seven goals and eighth-grader Bree E. added another to lead the Lady Wildcats past Astronaut 8-0 in district play Thursday night.

Pekmezian said she was ecstatic about the win. “I know I put my best effort and it paid off,” she said. “They’re a good team but I feel we were just better.”

Sophomore midfielder Palma Russo said she didn’t expect any less in their performance.

“We’ve worked hard as a team,” Russo said. “I feel we really deserved this win.”

Russo said Astronaut is a formidable team but didn’t play its best game.

“They could’ve done better if they tried,” she said. “Not better than us, though.”
