Forrest junior striker Brynn Colvin had a night to remember Tuesday at the Lions Club Memorial Field in Chapel Hill, scoring a school-record seven goals in an 11-0 romp of the Fayetteville Lady Tigers.

"I hope it's a school record," Colvin said. "It feels pretty good. This is the most goals I ever had, but I couldn't do this without my teammates sending the ball up and getting it to us."

Goal explosion

Haley Lowe (25) knocks in a rebound in the second half to secure a brace.

Haley Lowe started the scoring for the Lady Rockets at the 35:39 mark of the first half before Colvin went ballistic, netting six straight goals.

Colvin scored four in the first half with the first coming with 31:18 to play, and then Colvin deposited the first two in the second half.

"We won, but we didn't play our speed, so games like this teaches you that you can't play the way other teams do," Colvin said. "Even when you're winning, you can't give up."

Lainey Mays scored for Forrest (4-2, 1-0) to break Colvin's goal streak, and Lowe added her second goal to complete her brace, making it 9-0.

Colvin tallied her final goal with 25 minutes to play in the contest.

Biggest win

Rickee Gayle Carter rounded out the scoring with a goal at the 18:20 mark of the second half, giving Forrest its most lopsided win in school history.

"(Colvin) was on it tonight," Forrest coach Natalie Dennis said. "She struggled last game and didn't score and it got in her head. She was just determined tonight."

Fayetteville, which is only in its second year of varsity competition, had only 11 players available for the game.

"We just try to work on things that we need to work on when we play a team like that," Dennis said. "I hate it for them. They have a young program and are just getting started, but they'll be there someday. We all go through that."

The Lady Rockets will be back in action on Monday when they travel to Columbia to play the Middle Tennessee Cruisers. Forrest returns home on Sept. 22 when it faces Region 5 AA-A foe Huntland.
