LURAY, April 14 — Luray remains perfect on the pitch after handing out their third shutout of the season in girls soccer to the Mountaineers of Madison County on Thursday at Bulldog Field.

LHS senior Emilee Weakley once again dominated on offense, scoring four of the Bulldogs’ six goals. Three of those goals came in the first half, while the fourth came just 38 seconds into the second half. Weakley nearly broke a state record in scoring earlier in the young season, when she hit all nine of Luray’s goals in a 9-1 win at East Rockingham on April 1. The state record was 11.

On Thursday, LHS sophomore Hazel Parlett added two goals against Madison — one in the first half, and one with 16 minutes left in the second half. That would be the final scoring of the day as Luray secured the win to move to 6-0 on the season. All of those wins are in the Bull Run District.

With the loss, Madison falls to 3-4 overall and in the district. Prior to Thursday, Madison was coming off a narrow 2-1 win over East Rockingham, which broke a two-game losing streak. Next up, the Mountaineers will host Mountain View for another district match-up at 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 21.

Luray remains perfect on the season, but the Bulldogs will face their biggest test next Tuesday, April 19 when they travel to Clarke for their first meeting with the defending district champs at 7 p.m. The Bulldogs have only been in one close match this season, when they pulled out a 3-2 win over Strasburg on April 4. Every other win this season has been by a margin of six goals or more.

The Eagles of Clarke are currently the only other undefeated team in the Bull Run District.
