The Riverview Middle School Lady Eagle's soccer team remains undefeated at 4-0, following three wins last week.

Coach John Lundy's team picked up wins over Dawson County Middle School, Jasper and Pickens County.

"With some rough weather, we are having to play catch up and play in some wet conditions as well," Lundy said.

Riverview dominated play last week. The team scored 26 goals in the three-game sweep.

The Lady Eagles defeated Dawson, 10-0, Jasper, 6-0 and Pickens, 10-0.

The game against Jasper was shortened due to adverse weather conditions.

Scoring goals in the three-game stint were Rachel Rajczak with seven, Emma Martin had four goals, Mackenzie Kimbarl, Katie Clouse and Maggie Wright each scored three, Piper Wright and Kenzie Beaty had two goals each, Ruthie Pittman and Mary Beth Parris each scored one goal.

"With so many different girls scoring, it is proof that the girls take as much pride in their passing and assisting with goals as they do scoring. This is a very talented team, but the thing that I am most proud of is the girls are all willing to share the spotlight," Lundy said.

The Lady Eagles have yet to surrender a goal this season with four shutouts in four games.

"Our defense has stepped up and we take as much pride in the zero scores by the other team as the offense does in the number of goals scored," he said.

"I am lucky to be able to have the girls play many positions and give all the girls several minutes of play. This is a fun group to be around and I absolutely love watching them play."
