The Vikings struggled against the Bears’ attack, defending their own goal throughout most of the match.

In the first half, Mabton keeper Britney Guerrero had at least 6 saves as Kiona-Benton attacked the goal frequently.

The Bears won, 10-0.

Rodriguez had 5 saves, while her teammates made 3 scoring attempts.

Each of the Spartans shots was shut out by Carolina Arceo of the Scotties.

“The kept fighting for it and that’s what I was proud of,” she said.
