HAYS-Hays High opened up their 2019 girls soccer season in impressive fashion with a 7-1 win over TMP on Saturday at the Hays High Field. The Lady Indians tallied their first goal in the 14th minute when Taleia McCrae found the back of the net off of an assist from Jersey Johnson. That was the first of six first half goals for Hays as Caroline Robben, Savannah Schneider, Maggie Robben, Johnson, and Allison Shubert all scored for the Lady Indians who led 6-0 at halftime.
Kaylee Hernandez would get TMP on the board in the 44tth, which would be the only goal of the day for TMP who struggled to get the ball on the offensive end of the field all game. Johnson would score her second goal of the game in the 57th minute to wrap up the scoring for the game. Hays High showed their depth as they were able to make wholesale changes throughout the match. The Lady Monarchs did not have the depth but played hard throughout for first year head coach Racheal Hamel.
With the loss TMP drops to 0-3 on the season and will travel to Wichita on Monday to face Word of Life. Hays improves to 1-0 and will be in McPherson on Tuesday for the opening round of the McPherson Invitational where they will face Salina South.
