Moran scores twice as NC smothers Angelina

Samantha Moran scored goals in each half to lead eighth-ranked Navarro (11-3/9-1) to a 5-0 shutout of the Angelina Roadrunners in a Region XIV women’s soccer game Thursday.

Coach Alicia Wilson’s Bulldogs secured their fifth consecutive win and 11th shutout victory.

First-half goals by Annalise Rangel (6), Tateyanna Pitter (4) and Moran (6) provided the Bulldogs cushion heading into the intermission. Moran (7) and Laura Jansa (5) contributed second-half goals.

The Bulldogs completed a regular-season sweep from the Roadrunners, which dropped their second consecutive league game and slipped into fourth place, pending the outcome of Friday’s Northeast Texas-at-Tyler matchup.

Navarro now focuses its attention on a Region XIV Showdown with the league-leading, second-ranked TJC Apache Ladies (12-0/8-0) here at 4 pm Tuesday, Oct. 22.
