Spalding won its second straight match by the 10-0 mercy rule — the Lady Jags defeated crosstown rival Griffin on Friday — so it was only fitting six of the 10 goals on senior night were scored by seniors Myra Fisher, Taylor Hendricks, Olivia O’Brien and Alex Reaves.
Spalding improved to 8-4 overall while Alcovy had its four-match win streak snapped to fall to 8-4-1.
Alcovy was no match for the Lady Jags and the home team proved it early. Reaves scored a goal at the 28:03 mark of the first half to give Spalding a 1-0 lead. That was followed by an unassisted goal from Fisher, a goal from Hendricks (assisted by Li Anne Harris) and another unassisted goal from Fisher to give the Lady Jags a quick 4-0 lead at the 19:01 mark.
Junior Kristen Argila scored the match’s fifth goal off an assist by Madison Stewart at 7:41 and sophomore Anne Marie Martinez scored off another assist by Stewart with 35 seconds left to give Spalding the 6-0 lead at halftime.
The second half was more of the same as the Lady Jags made great passes, played great defense and scored at will on the Lady Tigers. O’Brien scored the next two goals, one off an assist from Harris and one unassisted, for the 8-0 lead at 33:37 and sophomore Katherine Blackmon scored the match’s final two goals to put Alcovy out of its misery, 10-0.
While the seniors played very well Tuesday, coach Wayne Gardner praised the play of a couple of underclassmen against Alcovy.
