HERTFORD — After the final whistle from the referee sounded, the celebration was on for the Perquimans girls’ soccer team.
High-fives went all around as the Lady Pirates celebrated a 6-0 win against Hertford County Monday night at Perquimans County Parks and Recreation soccer field.
Kaylin Russell led Perquimans (1-11) with three goals, while Morgan Stewart, Morgan DeCastillia and Karen Ocampo each added a goal in the win.
The win not only secured the first win of the season, but the first for the program.
In recent seasons, Perquimans only fielded a soccer team that featured boys and girls on the roster.
The co-ed team played during the boys’ soccer season in the fall.
This spring is the first year of a girls-only soccer team at Perquimans.
After the match, the team took in the accomplishment by taking a team photo.
“It’s great to have the first win ever in ladies soccer at Perquimans,” Perquimans coach John Manning said. “This is the beginning of, I think, of a good program. Our hope is to continue to grow it and expand it.”
Hertford County had multiple chances early in the match to score, but Perquimans would score two goals in the first half.
The first was by Russell. Minutes later Morgan Stewart would deposit the ball into the net to give Perquimans at 2-0 lead at halftime.
Morgan DeCastillia put the third goal on the board in the second half on a breakaway towards the net.
Russell added her second goal of the match following a corner kick in which the ball fell into the 18-yard box.
She was able to settle the ball and chip it over the Hertford County goalkeeper and into the net.
The Lady Pirates scored two goals late by Ocampo and Russell.
Entering Monday’s non-conference match with Hertford County (0-12), Perquimans had been outscored 80-7.
