Dorman 7, Nation Ford 0: Kayla McMillian scored two goals and led the Dorman Cavaliers to a win over the Nation Ford Falcons in the Class AAAA playoffs.
The Cavaliers, now 16-3-1, took a commanding 6-0 lead at halftime and went on from there.
“She’s good,” Nation Ford coach Caitlyn Bagwell said of McMillian. “She’s fast; very fast. We couldn’t hang with her. She’s got great skill and she can finish.”
Cassy Pankey also scored two first-half goals for the Cavaliers.
Meka Collett and Micheala Gleed scored the other goals for Dorman, which had two shots go off the crossbar and two more go off a side post.
Amelia Miles and Avery Smith combined for the shutout in goal.
“They’re a good team,” Bagwell said of Dorman. “We did not play our best tonight. I think (the early goals) kind of took the wind out of our sails. In the second half, we came out much better.”
The loss ended Nation Ford’s season at 11-10.
