EAST BEND — When the Forbush Falcons women’s soccer team wins, it wins big. On Monday night, the Falcons opened up their conference slate against South Stokes. Four Falcons players got the chance to score a goal, with two of those players scoring two goals.

The first half lacked the intensity that the Falcons usually bring. Going into the half the score was level 0-0, but the Falcons didn’t let the pace of the first half make its way into the second.

“We came out strong in the second half,” said Head Coach Kenan James. “It was a slow first half. We have to push the tempo a little bit sometimes.”

In the first five minutes of the second half, the Falcons notched two goals. With 36 minutes left in the second half, Macey York opened up the scoring for the Falcons. Less than a minute later, Madison York put the Falcons up 2-0. From there, the scoring floodgates opened up for the Falcons. Madison and Macey both knocked in another goal, while Anna Kathryn Kilby and Paige Keaton each scored one goal.

As the final whistle blew, the Falcons came away with a 6-0 win.

“The second half was great,” James said. “Six goals in one half, I’ll take that anytime.”

The Falcons’ next game will be against conference rivals West Stokes on Thursday night. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
