NEVADA — The No. 5 Nevada girls’ soccer team quickly disposed of a young Collins-Maxwell-Baxter squad, 11-0, Monday at the SCORE Athletic Complex in Nevada.

The Cubs scored all 11 goals in the first half to end the game by halftime due to the 10-goal mercy rule. The victory put Nevada at 7-3 on the season.

“Probably the best thing is we had six assists on the 11 goals,” Nevada head coach Randy Davis said. “The girls were really sharp and looking for the easy play that would put us in a better scoring opportunity rather than force the issue.”

Kati Cassabaum and Abby Stephenson had huge games individually for Nevada with four goals apiece. Cassabaum also handed out two assists and Stephenson dished out one.

Skye Borton also turned in a strong game with one goal and two assists. Hattie Rhodes tallied one goal and assist apiece and Erin Sellberg scored once for Nevada.

Cub all-state keeper Clara Sporrer only had to make one save as Nevada racked up its third shutout of the season.
