Rangers rout Southwest
Not many teams have been able to stop Northwest Mississippi Community College forward Elyse Lovelace from scoring this season.
Southwest Mississippi failed the test miserably.
Lovelace broke an NJCAA record by scoring nine goals in the Lady Rangers’ 16-0 victory against Southwest Sept. 26 in Senatobia.
Northwest, which pushed its win streak to four games, improved to 8-2 overall and 4-1 in the MACJC north division.
Lovelace, a freshman from Olive Branch, broke the national record of eight goals which was held by three different players. The most recent person to do it was Roberta Pelarigo of Young Harris College in 2003.
Lovelace has scored 25 goals in 10 contests for the Lady Rangers.
Northwest sophomore midfielder Justine Richins of Olive Branch broke a school record by registering seven assists. The old mark of four was set by Gena Gutierrez in 2004.
The 16 goals by the Lady Rangers was also a school record.
Several players chipped in the blowout victory.
Justine Hinkle of Hernando and Meredith Carver of Holcomb each scored twice, while Jennifer Addy of Madison added one goal and one assist.
Nekia Gainer of Byhalia added a goal, while Katie Whitson of Olive Branch pitched in with two assists.
