Wickliffe scored three second-half goals to defeat host Laurel on Monday, 5-1.
With the win, the Blue Devils improved to 4-0 on the year.
“Our girls had to adjust their style of play to contend with Laurel’s game plan,” said Wickliffe coach Steve Gribovicz. “We were able to slow things down and work the ball around to find openings in the defense while taking opportunities when we had them.”
The Blue Devils led 2-1 at halftime then dominated both ends of the field in the second half.
“After halftime, our players came out with a determined mindset,” Gribovicz said. “They were patient and took their time to set up attacks while winning the possession game. This mindset and our defense’s ability to go get the ball turned the momentum for us.”
Caitlyn Henderson recorded a hat trick and Morgan Gabriel and Mia Welms both scored one goal for the Blue Devils.
Gianna Ranallo assisted on two of Henderson’s goals with accurate passes up the middle. Henderson buried her third in an open goal.
“This season has been very exciting with our four great wins to start the season,” Henderson said. “In the game, we all played with heart and effort to earn our victory. We were taking advantage of the open routes and shot attempts.”
Jenna Melaragno also had an assist for Wickliffe.
“We were able to get contributions from many players this game,” Gribovicz said. “The experience from this game should go a long way as the season progresses.”
Caroline DeCicco scored for Laurel. The goal was the first allowed by Wickliffe in four games.
Wickliffe’s Kaylee Lauriel recorded one save while Laurel’s Grace DeCicco stopped 24 shots.
The Blue Devils travel to Perry on Thursday.
