Polk County built a 5-0 halftime lead and went on to post a 5-1 victory Monday over Mountain Heritage in a Western Highlands Conference girls soccer match in Burnsville.

Freshman Ava Marino opened the scoring just eight minutes into the game, scoring on a feed from Reese Alley. Rhian Alley and Reese Alley each then scored in the 20th minute, some 15 seconds apart, to give the Wolverines a 3-0 lead.
Freshmen Sydney Waldman and Mireya Roman then added goals in the final 15 minutes to boost Polk to its halftime edge.
The Wolverines outshot Mountain Heritage (0-2, 0-2) 22-2.
