East Valley Red Devils unable to muzzle Grandview

MOXEE - The Grandview soccer squad dominated most of yesterday's non-league match at East Valley, winning 5-1.

Greyhound Coach Anne Holden said there were a few challenges issued by the Red Devil offense, but it was Grandview that kept East Valley on its heels.

The match was scoreless for the first 26 minutes, but it was Grandview that drew first blood.

Victor Valencia of the 'Hounds delivered the ball to Martin Barragan, who capitalized on the scoring opportunity.

That was the first of three assists made by Valencia.

He maneuvered the ball past the East Valley defensive players just six minutes later, spotted teammate Ismael Montes and delivered the ball to the open player.

Montes didn't hesitate to shoot the ball into the back of the net.

The score would hold at 2-0 in favor of Grandview through halftime.

The momentum was in favor of the 'Hounds and it took just three minutes into the second half to score the third goal of the match.

Samuel Cuevas sent the ball sailing to fellow Grandview player Ruben Clara, who hit pay dirt.

Birthday boy Antonio Munoz got in on the action on the end of an assist by Valencia in the 61st minute of the match. Munoz booted the ball between the crossbars to give Grandview a score of 4-0.

East Valley, seven minutes later, managed to weave its way past Grandview's defensive effort. It was Garrett Williams of the Red Devils that kicked the ball past Grandview keeper Elmer Campuzano for East Valley's lone goal.

The 'Hounds finished the scoring with just three minutes left until the closing whistle.

"Lizard" Perez scored on an assist by freshman Israel Gonzalez to end the match 5-1.

Campuzano denied the Red Devils three times. East Valley attempted to score a total of four times.

Grandview (1-0, 5-1) had 10 scoring opportunities and Red Devil keeper Gauge Fereday shut the door on the ball five times.

The Greyhounds will tomorrow (Saturday) meet up with the Wolves in Wapato for a league match.
