The Huntland High School Lady Hornets beat the Richland Lady Raiders 2-0 on the road Thursday for their seventh win of the season.

The Lady Hornets scored once in each half and got their second shutout of the year on defense to extend their winning streak to seven games.

Huntland head soccer coach Amanda Tipps said her team got off to a slow start, but a strong defensive effort allowed them to get the victory.

Piper Cox would get the Lady Hornets on the board midway through the first half as she scored off of an assist from Hazel Reed for her third goal of the season.

The Lady Hornets led 1-0 at halftime.

The Lady Hornets would expand their lead with 15 minutes remaining in the contest as Logan McLennan scored her fifth goal of the season with Hazel Reed once again providing an assist.

Huntland’s defense would maintain the shutout the rest of the way as the Lady Hornets won by two.

With the win, the Lady Hornets improved to 7-0-1 on the season and 5-0 in district play.

They will next play Monday at home against Cornersville High School. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
