At Westminster High School, in the first game of the 2019 season for the ladies’ soccer team, Denver North (2-1) scored early and never turned back in their 7-0 victory March 12.
Scoring twice in the first eight minutes and 39 seconds, DN had their way throughout. Leading the charge with the hat-trick, Lady Vikings’ senior Kenna Salyers was a problem for the Westy defense. Four others also tallied goals for Denver North in the contest.
“They have a lot of good players there, and they had some good movement, good passing, and great goals,” Westminster coach Bryan Little said. “We were organized, but it’s hard to compete with that level of play.”
Only attempting two shots offensively all night with one corner kick, Westminster’s sophomore goalie Linda Osorio and her defense were under extreme pressure from the opening kick. Despite seven shots finding the net, Osorio’s effort and willingness to give up her body to make some clutch second-half shots is a positive for Little and his defense moving forward.
“I think the organization of our defense was in good shape. The saves our goaltender made, and in the second half the girls worked hard,” Little said.
Playing all 80 minutes, seniors Amanda McGowan, Rachel Alvarez, and Savannah Garcia set the tone for their team. Sophomores Lauren Graves and Elizabeth Aleman also caught eyes with their activity and relentlessness in the opener.
