GRANDVIEW - The Grandview Lady Greyhounds battled against East Valley's Red Devils this past Saturday, Sept. 11, but came away with a 6-1 loss.
The game started promising for the Lady Greyhounds. In the first 20 seconds of the game, center midfielder Oryan Matheny picked off a pass from the Red Devils. Matheny then passed to forward Karissa Trinidad who scored the team's only goal for the game.
"We woke a sleeping giant," enthused Coach Anne Holden.
But the team's strong opening gave way to the Red Devils' technical abilities, Holden stated.
East Valley had 12 direct shots throughout the 80-minute game. Grandview's goal keepers, Jamila Schasser and Karen Ramirez, saved six of those direct shots.
Grandview, on the other hand, made eight direct shots, scoring once.
"We created a lot of opportunities to score," stated Holden. "We just need to follow through on the opportunities."
Holden is also looking to tighten up the back to limit the other team's scoring opportunities.
"We know where our weaknesses are and what we need to work on."
The Lady Greyhounds head to Toppenish on Tuesday, Sept. 14, where the team is hopeful they'll capture their season's first win.
