EDWARDS — Apparently, the ball girl has some game.

Freshman Audrey Teague, who has watched more soccer than most kids her age probably should on the Battle Mountain sideline chasing after stray projectiles, rang up a hat trick on Friday night as the Huskies cruised past Summit County, 7-0, in Edwards.

“I’ve definitely been looking forward to coming into a family, like Battle Mountain’s,” Teague said. “The environment is great. Being able to step on the field with varsity is a fun time.”

Teague capped her hat trick on a breakaway late and the Teague family went nuts out of pride in the press box.

As exciting as the hat trick was, the bigger theme three games into the season for Battle Mountain (3-0) is a bunch of different players finding the back of the net. With a lot of goal scoring having graduated last spring, finding new sharpshooters was a top priority this season.

On Friday, the Huskies got six of their seven from underclassmen, so that’s encouraging.

“We’re definitely building,” Huskies coach David Cope said. “It’s hard to think we played better than we did against Eagle (Valley on Tuesday). At times today, we did. It was great to see players come of the bench and contribute. It was great to see Audrey get her first hat trick of high school. She’s been waiting a long time for that. I thought Avery Weaver had a superb game too.”
