Enoch leads Knights past Pirates
MERLIN -Senior central midfielder Malloree Enoch sparked the North Valley girls soccer team with a second-half hat trick in a 3-1 win over Phoenix on Thursday.
The Pirates (4-4-1 overall, 2-1 District 6) scored in the first minute when sophomore right midfielder Kat Cox's cross was finished by sophomore forward Larrisa Wiltrout.
Enoch's barrage for the Knights (5-2-2, 4-0) began in the 49th minute with an unassisted tally from 8 yards out.
Six minutes later, Enoch made the most of another solo effort, completing a determined dribbling dash by deking the Pirates? goalkeeper and taking the ball unopposed into the net.
In another five minutes, Enoch struck again, this time knocking home a cross from freshman forward Shae Miller.
After scoring 38 goals as a forward last season, Enoch has a team-leading nine while directing from the midfield this fall.
She's a stud, said Phoenix coach John Doty, who gave sophomore Sarah Kieffer the unenviable task of shadowing Enoch.
North Valley outshot Phoenix, 14-11.
— ST. MARY'S 3, ROGUE RIVER 0 -At Rogue River, Emily Smith scored a hat trick to lead St. Mary's to a District 6 win.
Smith was assisted by Margo Chamberlain on all three goals as the Crusaders improved to 5-1-1 overall and 3-1 in District 6 play. Rogue River fell to 0-3.
HIDDEN VALLEY 5, ILLINOIS VALLEY 0 -At Murphy, Shea Ford scored a hat trick and Nina Jaramillo added two more goals as Hidden Valley cruised to a District 6 win.
Ford and Jaramillo each scored a goal in the first half for a 2-0 lead at the break.
Jaramillo notched her final goal, sandwiched in between Ford's remaining scores, in the second half for the Mustangs (2-5-1, 1-2 District 6).
ILLINOIS VALLEY 2, NORTH VALLEY 0 -At Cave Junction, Beau Brown and Doug Hedrick scored first-half goals to propel Illinois Valley to the upset win.
The Cougars moved to 1-6 in District 6 play while North Valley dropped to 1-4-1.
