Junior midfielder Sadie Bailey scored two goals in the second half as Ashland pulled away for a 5-0 win over Crater in nonconference girls soccer action Tuesday at North Mountain Park.
The lopsided victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the Grizzlies (2-5), who earned their first win since Sept. 15.
Sophomore forward Facien Graham scored off an assist by Sarah Honeywell in the 11th minute to give Ashland a 1-0 halftime lead. The Grizzlies then erupted in the second half, with Bailey connecting in the 61st off an assist by Ia Balbuena and in the 74th in a near identical play.
Julia Wilson scored off a cross by Graham to give Ashland a 2-0 lead three minutes into the second half.
"We did a good job in the first half but couldn't put our opportunities into the net," Ashland coach Eric Wolff said. "But in the second half "…we had some great combinations to have some good crosses in the box. It was a great team effort."
Wolff added that Ashland's defense and midfield held Crater out of Ashland's half from beginning to end. "Our focus was there throughout the game," he said.
Ashland's Diego Harrison had a hat trick in the first half, powering Ashland to a 4-0 nonleague victory Tuesday at Central Point.
Max Heine scored in the 41st minute for the Grizzlies (3-3).
Harrison had goals in the 23rd, 35th and 36th minutes, receiving assists from Stenley Graham and Geronimo Garcia-Ayala on two of those.
Goalkeeper Ross Kandaris earned the shutout against Crater (0-8).
The Comets enjoyed improved midfield play, thanks largely to the orchestration of center mid Ivan Encisco.
