A three-goal second half helped push the Winder-Barrow High School Lady Bulldogg soccer team to a 4-1 victory against Rockdale County Tuesday night.

Clara Tapplin and Ashley Hagenbaugh helped lead WBHS to the victory.

The match was tied at one goal each at halftime but Tapplin scored twice in the second half and finished with three overall.

Hagenbaugh also added a goal for coach Ben Arms.

Tapplin scored her team’s first goal at the 9:06 mark of the first half, erasing what had been a one-goal deficit. Rockdale County had scored the first goal of the match at the 18:11 mark of the first half.

Tapplin struck quickly in the second half, finding the net at the 39:13 mark. After the Lady Doggs just missed another scoring opportunity at the 32:05 mark, Hagenbaugh scored with 28:44 left before Tapplin sealed the deal with 28:25 remaining.

Arms was pleased by the victory but told his team after the game to continue looking ahead and focus on the task of returning to the postseason.
