Loudon High School entered Thursday's girls soccer game coming off the first win of the season, a 5-2 decision over Sequoyah.
The Lady Redskins continued to build some momentum as they put together a 9-1 thrashing of Polk County.
With 15 minutes remaining in the first half, Loudon was leading 3-0 when a lightning storm caused a delay.
Krista Hendrickson scored first for Loudon, Jessica Dunker knocked one in on a free kick from about 25 yards out and Lucia Guillen scored after a corner kick was deflected by the Polk County defense.
After the break in play, Loudon got right back into its groove. Polk County's only goal of the match came in the final minutes of the first half. Aside from that, Loudon was in complete control.
Luisa Aguilar, Ashley Moua and Laurel Neuzil all scored, with Guillen adding a second goal and Hendrickson scoring two more times.
"One of the things that we noticed at the beginning of the season that we had to work on was communication and our passing," Loudon coach Samuel Harrison said. "We hadn't been doing that at the beginning of the season. We really focused on that technical part of the game. That's why we were able to get all the opportunities that we had today."
Hendrickson, a sophomore, has proven Loudon's top goal threat. Harrison said it's no surprise.
"She just has the whole package when it comes to soccer," he said. "She's still young and there's a few kinks that we've got to work out, but even people that don't know anything about soccer can watch her play and know that she's a baller. She's a phenomenal player."
For a Loudon team that suffered season-ending injuries to three defensive starters, winning two district games has certainly been a relief.
"We just take it one game at a time, but this is definitely a feel-good win for us," Harrison said. "There's definitely some momentum going on, but we don't want to put the cart before the horse. We know there's a lot of tough games ahead of us that, quite frankly, we're the underdog in.
"They know we're going to have to battle in every game we're in," he said. "But definitely we can build off this tonight. They're happy, I'm happy and I'm just happy for the program."
Loudon will play three non-district games in its next three matches. The Lady Redskins play at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Anderson County, at 6 p.m. Thursday at home against Grace Christian Academy, which is undefeated this season, and at 6 p.m. Sept. 24 at Halls.
"We're making some progress," Harrison said. "I was able to get everybody in and every single one of them played good. It's definitely something we can build on."
