    Despite a slow start the SCHS girls’ soccer team hammered host Henry County, 9-0, Thursday.

    The Lady Rockets (5-1) got two goals from Alex Patterson, two assists from Callie Greiner and a goal from Maggie Goetzinger in the first half, but Coach Joe Turner wasn’t pleased with the team’s play early on.

    “The first half was a slow process,” he said. “We played very flat from the beginning.”

    The second half, however, was a different story. The girls stormed out of the gate and ended Henry County’s (0-4) chances early on.
