GIRLS SOCCER

MILTON -- Mackenna Miller's two first-half goals were all that Milton needed to beat Danville, 2-1, and remain undefeated on the season in the Heartland-I opener for the two teams.

Alexa Landis assisted on Miller's first goal, while the second one was unassisted for Milton (2-0, 1-0 HAC-I).

Kayla Morran scored unassisted for Danville (0-1, 0-1), and her goal came in the first half as well.

Dani Lincoln made nine saves to preserve the win for the Black Panthers. Julianne Ernest had four stops for the Ironmen.

MIDDLEBURG -- Marissa Heddings had a hand in all three goals in the first half for the Seals, leading them to the HAC-I win.

"Selinsgrove is a very tough team, a very solid team," said Midd-West coach Russ Goodling. "Heddings is tough to contain, and we didn't do that."

Heddings first assisted on a goal by Samantha Rodkey before tallying both of hers in the final 10 minutes of the first half.

Lexie Willard put the game away for Selinsgrove (3-0, 1-0 HAC-I) by connecting off a Mackenzie Apple assist with 12 seconds left in the game.

"It was a nice way to open the league season," said Selinsgrove coach Matt Metzger. "A win out at Middleburg and putting up four goals gives us good confidence, and hopefully the girls can build on that."

Midd-West falls to 1-2, 0-1.

LEWISBURG -- Mackenzie Moore and Elke Velz scored two goals apiece to lead the Green Dragons to the HAC-I win.

Moore scored the first two goals of the game for Lewisburg (1-0 overall and HAC-I). Both goals were assisted by Velz and both came in the first 6 minutes, 10 seconds.

Lindsay Ayers then scored to give the Green Dragons their third goal in the opening seven minutes before Velz gave the hosts a 4-0 halftime lead by scoring off a Mariah Brouse assist.
