Girls tune up for soccer clash with 2-0, 5-0 wins
Winning WRHS, Community School openers
Starting the girls? soccer season with shutout success on the road last week, the Wood River High School and Community School squads tuned up for their first of two meetings of the season, set for Tuesday.
Coach Greg Gvozdas? Wood River Wolverines scored once in each half Saturday in Twin Falls and blanked the host Twin Falls Bruins 2-0. Friday, coach Kelly Feldman?s Community School Cutthroats had it all over Buhl 5-0, in Buhl.
Wood River (1-0-0) and The Community School (1-0-0 overall and league) renewed their rivalry Tuesday at South Valley Sports Complex soccer field, Hailey. Check out Friday?s Mountain Express for a full report of Tuesday?s big game.
On Saturday in Twin Falls, Wood River?s Kaitlin Gasenica collected a ball bouncing around in the box and scored Hailey?s first goal of the season in the 28th minute. In the second half, at the 54th minute, Danielle Donovan added Hailey insurance off a corner kick by Calley Brown.
Sweeper Katie Jensen and right back Gina Thomas did a good job for Wood River?s stingy defense, coach Gvozdas said. ?We had most of the play, out-shooting Twin Falls probably 14 to 6 or 7,? he said.
The coach added, ?I thought it was a strong start for us. We did a lot of things well. There?s still room for improvement, but it was a good start particularly since we lost to Twin Falls twice last year.?
Facing off against a young and inexperienced Tribe squad in Buhl Friday, The Community School built a 2-0 half-time lead and breezed 5-0. Cassidy Doucette scored two goals.
Striker Doucette opened the scoring for the Cutthroats, converting a cross from Chloe Lynn, then Ross Mills made a direct kick for the 2-0 lead.
Doucette went in alone for a 3-0 game, then Sarah Berman followed her kick and the ball into the Tribe net for a 4-0 cushion. Mandy Alexander took a Cristina Walsworth pass and scored for the 5-0 final.
