MONTGOMERY | Northridge High School forward Amanda Baker scored a hat trick Tuesday night to spark the North All-Stars to a 5-2 win over the South in the AHSAA North-South All-Star soccer competition at Emory Folmar YMCA Stadium.
Baker, who was North MVP, scored her first goal with eight seconds left in the first half to break a scoreless tie. Claudia Day of Briarwood Christian made it 2-0 with a goal to start the second half. She got a nice assist from Chelsea’s Britne Holderby — the first of three assists for the midfielder.
Holderby used two corner kicks to assist on goals by Day and Baker midway through the second half to seal the win.
The South got on the scoreboard when Alabama Christian’s Hampton Brinson scored with just more than 14 minutes remaining. Jane Hampton, who earned MVP honors for the South, got the final goal of the match with 5:02 remaining.
The North improved to 10-2-1 in the series.
