North Forsyth’s girls spread the wealth Thursday night.

Four different players scored goals in the first half as the Lady Raiders earned a comfortable 4-0 win against White County at Raider Valley.

Less than halfway through the season, North (5-2-1) has already exceeded its win total from last year.

“We’re starting to get a lot better at spreading the ball, moving up slowly, making combinations, doing some give-and-go’s and that kind of thing,” North coach Kathy Houston said.

“We’ve been working on that and we’re getting better and better each game.”

Tiffany Raygor struck first, scoring on a breakaway to give North a 1-0 lead one second before the 10-minute mark, and Kayla Vincent doubled the lead in the 19th minute with a shot from near the left sideline.

After helping lead the Lady Raiders’ basketball team to the second of the Class AAAAA playoffs, freshman Lochlain Corliss showed she’s also a threat on the soccer field.

Corliss took a cross from Ally Vititoe and sent the ball into the net in the 31st minute, boosting the advantage to 3-0.

Chandler Maddox rounded off the scoring just before halftime when she delivered a high shot from near the right sideline that snuck in over the outstretched hands of the White County (3-5) goalkeeper.

“We’re starting to learn each other,” Houston said.

“We’ve had some basketball players come out recently, so they’re just now getting into the rhythm with everybody. We’re heading in the right direction at the right time.”
