Clear Fork 2, Buckeye Valley 0

BELLVILLE — Clear Fork opened Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference play on the road with a 2-0 win over Buckeye Valley last Wednesday.

With five minutes left in the first half, Allie Studenmund played a direct kick over the Buckeye Valley defense that Kaylin Helinski ran onto and buried in the upper left corner for a 1-0 lead. That got the Lady Colts going, and four minutes later Maleah Garrabrant played a ball down the left wing that Morgan Galco received, cut back and blasted to the upper right corner to lead 2-0 at halftime.

Clear Fork had several scoring opportunities in the second half, but couldn’t convert.

The Lady Colts’ defense remained strong and Jordan Beahr made three saves in goal.
