It was a blazing hot summer afternoon under a sun that was beating down on two teams preparing to square off on the pitch Tuesday at Citizens Bank Stadium.

Once the action began, the Jr. Lady Cyclones of T.A. Dugger turned the heat up even hotter as they hosted the Sullivan East Middle School Jr. Lady Patriots and by the time the 30 minutes of the first half ticked off the clock, the writing was pretty much on the wall as T.A. Dugger built a 7-0 lead at the break and cruised to an 8-0 shutout.

Izzy Lewis pulled a hat trick for the Jr. Lady Cyclone scored three goals on the afternoon. Lewis had plenty of support in the contest as Lihanna Nave added two to the board as well.

Isla Grindstaff, Madelynn Stanberry, and Vella Nave contributed with one goal apiece.

While the Jr. Lady Cyclones were taking care of business offensively, goalkeeper Princess Russell pitched a shutout with two saves

Getting credit for assists in the contest were Maddix Morton with two, Grindstaff one, Lewis one, and Nave one.

The Jr. Lady Cyclones hit the field again on Tuesday, August 31st when they host Liberty Bell.
