ROLESVILLE — Wakefield High School’s girls soccer team blew out Rolesville 7-1 on the road Tuesday to win their sixth NAC 6 conference match in a row.

The Wolverines had four different players score a goal. The Rams scored their only goal of the match near the end of the game when Wakefield had most of their backups on the field.

Corbin Reifschneider recorded a hat trick with three goals. Tareya Stokes scored two goals and her little sister, Makaela, scored a goal as well. Syndey Zacher also added one goal.

Jeanna Freeman led the way with two assists. Kaitlyn Bouck, Sam Francis and Hannah Francis all had one assist each. Wakefield head coach C.J. Komons said the girls did a great job moving the ball, despite playing on a wet field.

“The girls really stayed focused tonight,” Komons said. “The field condition was very wet. It was a challenge coming in, but they stayed focused and played our game. The girls moved the ball really well on a wet field.”

Defensively, Komons praised his defensive backs for staying consistent all season long. The Wolverines have only allowed five goals scored against them in 12 matches this year.

“My defensive backs have played strong all year,” Komons said. “They come through on a daily basis. We have high expectations for them and they have high expectations for themselves.”

With the loss, Rolesville dropped to 2-9 overall and 1-6 in NAC 6 conference play. The Lady Rams are officially out of the 4A state playoffs at fifth place in the conference.

As for Wakefield, the win pushed them to 10-2 overall and 6-1 in conference play. Since losing the conference opener to Corinth Holders on March 18, the Wolverines have won every conference match since then, outscoring their NAC 6 opponents 25-1.

When schools get back from spring break, Wakefield will play Heritage at home at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 23 to determine the regular season NAC 6 conference champion. The Wolverines beat the Huskies 2-0 earlier this year on the road March 27.
