TOPPENISH - The Grandview girls soccer team defeated Toppenish's Wildcats 3-0 yesterday, Sept. 14.
Coach Anne Holden was pleased to report that the team created 15 scoring opportunities, while Toppenish managed only three, each blocked by goal keeper Renelle Kalaw.
Center midfielder Oryan Matheny collected all three scores for the Lady Greyhounds. The first came within 15 minutes of the first half. Matheny scored following a pass from defensive midfielder Isabel Islas.
Matheny's second score came 30 minutes into the game and she managed it unassisted, though her final score was aided by defender Gabby Montelongo.
"We were real happy with the way we dominated the other players and created [scoring] chances," said Holden.
Holden said the Lady Greyhounds will be focusing on implementing a style of play that combines improved possession, shifting defense and penetrating gaps.
"We are working on our speed," she added.
The Lady Greyhounds (1-1, 1-2) move back into battle against Wapato this Saturday in Grandview.
