CULLMAN — St. Bernard's girls soccer team let loose for four first-half goals and added two more in the second to hand Susan Moore a 6-0 shutout Tuesday at home.
Aimme Cortes, Logan Ayers, Greer Cauthen and Abbie Mescher put the game out of reach by the break. The second string made the most of their playing time in the closing stretch, with Griselda Silva punching in her first-ever goal for the Lady Saints and Zana Wilson rounding out the scoring. Mescher and Cortes each had an assist.
The win was St. Bernard's first of the season after a tough-luck start. The Saints dropped their opening game 1-0 to Brewer in the last two-and-a-half minutes. They allowed four goals to Altamont in the first 13 minutes of their follow-up but quickly adjusted to only fall 5-0.
St. Bernard (1-2) will host Pope John Paul II for an area contest next Tuesday.
