Mount Vernon Christian Hurricanes 4,

Coupeville Wolves 0

COUPEVILLE — While both squads battled blustery conditions, Mount Vernon Christian made the most of its scoring opportunities.

Lily Long put the Hurricanes up 1-0 at halftime. In the second half, Caitlin Vanderkooy had one goal and Abby Russell two.

"Our first two goals of the game were about the best quality chances we created from our ability to string some passes together," said Hurricanes coach Mike Russell. "Both came off a good passing combination and a good final slotted pass for a good finish."

The coach was also impressed with center-back Sophia Schmaus, a position she had not played in two years.

Mount Vernon Christian is 10-1-1.
