RIDGWAY â€“Â Ridgway girls soccer earned its first win of the season in its home opener with a 6-2 victory over Kane Monday afternoon at Francis S. Grandinetti Elementary School.
The Lady Elkers offense wasted little time in getting on the scoreboard as senior striker Rhianon Fowler would score on a shot from a poor angle, knocking it in the upper left corner for a 1-0 lead.
