Macon County High freshman Chloe Carver plays a ball out of the air in front of White County’s Gracy Luna.

Entering last Thursday evening's match against visiting White County, all of the Macon County High School soccer squad's contests had been decided by one goal.

That wasn't the case against the Lady Warriors though as the Tigerettes dominated in the 8-0 victory.

"It was nice to finally have a game where we were able to settle in, relax and have fun," Macon County first-year head coach Terrance Pryor said. "All of our games have been pressure-packed, down to the wire."

The Tigerettes built a 6-0 lead by halftime.

Freshman Emma Dickerson opened the scoring with an unassisted goal.

Then, junior Morgan Carter's throw-in from the left sideline bounced across the box, where sophomore Emily Ashburn settled the ball, angled to the right and placed a diagonal shot back into the left side of the net.

Jamie Ashburn deposited a looping shot from 25 yards out over a leaping Saige Johnson, the White County goalkeeper.

foot, dribbled forward into the box and deposited an unmarked shot into the top, left side of the net for the fourth goal.

Junior Keeley Carter maneuvered past a defender 27 minutes into the match and fired a shot off of Johnson's hands and into the left side of the goal.

Jamie Ashburn concluded the first-half scoring with her second goal, and junior teammate Morgan Carter accounted for both of the second-half goals.

"We did what we were supposed to do," Pryor said. "We still have a few positions to figure out, and we have to do a better job of settling in. The best players are confident and calm, but I'm proud of the way we were able to come out and take care of business (on Thursday)."

Macon County evened its record at 2-2, while White County fell to 1-4.

• The Tigerettes picked up their first win of the season on Aug. 21, a 2-1 victory over the Middle Tennessee Golden Eagles at the Wilson United Soccer Field in Lebanon.

Macon County scored the first two goals, one in each half, and then held on.
