LEWISTOWN - In a span of three minutes in the first half, the Huskies did everything they needed to.
Mifflin County buried three goals early and never looked back to propel itself over Huntingdon, 6-0, in field hockey action Wednesday afternoon.
Taylor Kuhns and Sam Peters accounted for seven total points for Mifflin County en route to the win.
Although the field was wet from the rain earlier in the day, Mifflin County displayed its speed and controlled the game from start to finish as its quick and efficient passing was too much for Huntingdon. The Bearcat offense was almost nonexistent for the entire game.
After the Huskies couldn't convert on some early opportunities, Kuhns took a pass from Whitney Strohecker and buried the ball in the cage for her first goal of the game five minutes into the matchup.
Less than two minutes later, Kuhns took another pass from Sam Peters and put the ball in the left corner for her second goal of the game and a 2-0 Husky lead.

Kuhns then dropped a centering pass to Sam Peters and Mifflin County had a 3-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the game.
With the score 4-0, the Huskies gave all their starters a rest and brought in 10 fresh players to put pressure on an already tired Huntingdon team.
The Huskies' reserve unit were just as hungry as the starters. Katie Fox received a pass from Allison Fox and put it in the right side for a 5-0 lead. Peters then scored her second goal of the game with 3:57 left in the first to make it a 5-0 game.
Huskies coach Tish McClay was happy she was able to get her reserves more time on the field than usual.
"We got to play everybody," McClay said. "Everyone played about an equal amount of time and that doesn't always happen, so it was nice that we could get them out there."
The Huskies stayed aggressive in the second half with nine corners and six shots, but only scored once when Allison Fox hit a liner into the net.
McClay used the second half to work on some things she felt her team could improve on.
"We wanted to move the ball around a little more and we wanted to make sure we had some steady sticks and make sure we weren't swinging and missing," she said.
The Huskies defense also played a huge part in the game as they held the Bearcats to no shots and no corners as they won almost every 50-50 ball and kept the Bearcats from being able to slow down and set up in the offensive zone.
With the win, the Huskies improve to 5-3 including a 5-1 record in the Tri-Valley Conference.
