GRANDVIEW - The Lady Greyhounds shut out league leading East Valley for the first 30 minutes but it wasn't enough in a 3-0 CWAC soccer loss Tuesday evening.
"We played very well against the number one team in our league," Coach Anne Holden said.
The Red Devils' first goal came at the 30-minute mark and they scored a few minutes later on what could be considered a controversial call.
"One of their players made a shot and our keeper went down to the ground to defend it," Holden explained. "While she was on the ground another East Valley player went for the ball and kicked her in the face."
Despite the apparent injury, time was not called and the Red Devils' second goal stayed on the books.
East Valley sealed the deal early in the second half to make it a 3-0 game.
High points for Grandview included the play of reserve keeper Olivia Macias, who recorded 10 saves. In addition, midfielder Ana Tinta helped out on Grandview's six shot attempts on goal. "Ana was a mighty mouse out there for us," Holden noted. "That's one of the best games I've seen her play in a long time."
Grandview (1-4, 1-6) travels to neighboring Sunnyside tomorrow for a non-league match between the Lower County rivals.
