Wiesbaden broke Ramstein's season-long girls soccer shutout on Saturday. But that was about the end of the good news for the Warriors.

The defending Division I champion Royals added another victim to their growing list on Saturday, blasting divisional rival Wiesbaden 6-1 behind a five-goal effort from star striker Ebony Madrid.

Wiesbaden interrupted the onslaught just long enough to hang the first score of the year on the Ramstein defense, a second-half goal by Rebecca Russell off an assist by Janice Teschner. The Royals had won their previous four games - all against Division I opposition - by a combined 28-0 score.

The Ramstein offense rendered that Warrior score a mere footnote. In addition to Madrid's irresistible force on the front line, teammate Ariel Crespo added a goal and Amanda Ambrose, Maddi Frederick, Sam Heisey and Lakyn Parker dished out an assist apiece.

The Royals are idle next weekend. They'll face Patch on May 2 in the latest entry in the teams' extended championship-level rivalry.
