Lady Rams beat up Olney for second win

MT. VERNON – Whitney Warner helped power the Lady Rams offense in a 5-0 win against Olney.

“We needed that,” Mt. Vernon girls soccer coach Jeff Harrison said. “We've had a tough schedule early in the season

“We wanted to have a good effort. We wanted to play with a lot of energy.”

The senior striker scored four goals in the game. Chandler Scarbrough also scored for Mt. Vernon.

“It's Whitney's job to finish, and when everybody's doing their job she gets an opportunity to do hers,” Harrison said. “Today it worked out.”

The Lady Rams controlled every aspect of the game. Mt. Vernon dominated the time of possession and outshot Olney 17-2.

Sydney Crews linked up with Warner for Mt. Vernon's opening two goals. Five minutes into the game, Crews lofted a corner kick that fell to Warner, who blasted a shot past the Olney goalie.

Crews found Warner about five minutes later with a pass behind the Olney defense. Warner ran onto the ball and cracked a shot into the net.

“They're playing their positions the way they're supposed to,” Harrison said. “(Sydney)'s got great vision. She can see the passing lanes. Whitney can see them. She knows to get in them.”

With 21:39 left in the opening half, Warner ran onto another long ball from the back. This time the pass came from Taylor McGowen's foot. The striker took a couple touches and scored for a first-half hat trick. Warner added her fourth score late in the second half.

Chandler Scarbrough was the other goal scorer for Mt. Vernon. The midfielder chipped a shot from about 20 yards away that flew over the Olney goalie's head into the back of the net.

“She can play any position on the field comfortably,” Harrison said. “And she showed that today. She played three, four different spots.”
