WAPATO - Building a three-goal lead in the first 30 minutes, the Greyhound soccer team easily tamed host Wapato last Saturday, 6-0.
"I didn't expect it to be as one-sided as it was," said Grandview Coach Anne Holden. "Wapato played well in patches, but we just had too much speed and control and too many combinations and they couldn't keep up."
Grandview wasted little time cracking the scoreboard in Saturday's CWAC contest, as in the 12th minute of play Victor Valencia found the back of the net thanks to an assist from Cesar Orduno.
Only six minutes later Grandview was back in business as Valencia dished to teammate Ruben Clara to make it a 2-0 score.
The Greyhounds went up 3-0 at the half when in the 32nd minute Ismael Montes knocked in a score with an assist from Israel Gonzalez.
The rout continued into the second half as in the 53rd minute Cesar Orduno knocked in a goal assisted by Javier Cardenas.
Grandview went up 5-0 in the 61st minute on what Holden called a "hustle play" by Antonio Munoz in scoring unassisted.
The Greyhounds' sixth and final tally came in the 73rd minute when Samuel Cuevas assisted Martin Barragan for a goal.
Not only was Grandview dominant on the scoreboard, but on the stat sheet as well. The Greyhounds pounded 14 shots on goal to just two for Wapato.
Grandview keeper Elmer Capuzano swatted away both of Wapato's scoring attempts.
Grandview (2-0, 6-1) doesn't return to the pitch until this coming Saturday. That match will be played at West Valley.
After a couple of days off for spring break, Holden says her players will resume practice this week to gear up for the rest of the regular season.
"We'll hit the conditioning very hard, then have tactical sessions preparing our formations and combinations so we can maintain the kind of game we want," Holden said. "We're not a finished product, we don't want to be. We've got the attitude that we have to earn everything, earn it every game."
