The Rome girls soccer team remained undefeated as they stretched their winning streak to five games Wednesday night with a 2-0 victory against Cass.

The game saw no goals until just before the end of the first half when the Lady Wolves got the ball rolling. Theresa Stevens scored off an assist from Cristina Langlois to give Rome a 1-0 edge before the half.

“We came out slow at the beginning and had a hard time getting the rhythm going,” said Rome coach Jessica Hewitt. “We scored just before the first half so that got us a little more motivated.”

The late-half goal got the Lady Wolves (5-0, 1-0) motivated enough to score another goal in the second half, again from Stevens who recently signed to play soccer for Savannah College of Art and Design.

“We worked out something and the second half went better,” said Hewitt.

Goalkeeper Courtney Lovingood had four saves in goal, backing up a defensive effort that kept Cass scoreless. In fact, the Lady Wolves defense has proven so strong, that they have not given up more than one goal to an opponent all season.

The next challenge for Rome will be its second region game at North Paulding on Friday.
