Polk JVs blank Crest, complete series sweep

Polk County’s junior varsity completed a sweep of Crest, blanking the Chargers 3-0 Tuesday in a non-conference match in G.M. Tennant Stadium.

The Wolverines (2-2) picked up a goal midway through the first half as Cassidy Ash took a pass from Natalie Serrano and broke free into the penalty area, hitting her final effort just inside the right post for a 1-0 advantage.

Polk County then extended the lead in the second half, with Diana Santibanez scoring on a pass from Ash in the 38th minute and Allison Kennedy following moments later with a goal on another Ash assist.

Polk then kept Crest at bay to allow goalkeeper Maggie Johnson to record her second shutout of the season. Polk shut out Crest 4-0 in a March 11 match.

The Wolverines are back in action next Tuesday, hosting Hendersonville for a Mountain Foothills 7 Conference match.
