Polk Middle's Renee Bright turns back a Hendersonville Middle attack during the second half of Wednesday's match

Goals didn’t come quite as easily Wednesday for Polk Middle as they flowed in the team’s first three matches.

Which mattered very little to the Wolverine defense and goalkeeper Sofie Abrahamsen.

Polk celebrated its home debut with its third straight shutout, defeating Hendersonville Middle 2-0 before a crowd of appreciative fans at Utz Field.

The Wolverines (4-0) tallied 23 goals in their first three matches, but the Bearcats’ aggressive defense made scoring a bit tougher. Polk still found the net once in each half.

Reeve Carroll played a role in both strikes, giving the Wolverines a 1-0 edge in the first half with her 10th goal of the season. Carroll then set up the Wolverines’ second-half goal, driving down the right flank before hitting a cross that Kenley Savaia redirected into the net for her sixth goal of the year.

That would be all that Polk’s defense needed. The Wolverines turned away each Hendersonville Middle opportunity, with Abrahamsen scooping up the few Bearcat shots that did make it through Polk’s back line.

Polk Middle returns to action on Monday, hosting Flat Rock Middle for a 4:30 p.m. match.
