It wasn’t a matter of which Lady Bruin would get lucky and score a goal in Thursday’s 10-0 victory over the Coquille Red Devils, it was a matter of who would be unlucky as nine different Bruins scored 10 goals in the win.

Full-time defensive player Sonia Haro was the only Bruin to score two goals on Thursday and she did it playing a position she rarely plays.

“I’m back, so it felt good to play a new position,” Haro said. “I have to be more aggressive back there, so I think it helped out up front.”

 

When asked if she was nervous about trying to score, Haro demurred.

“I wasn’t anticipating scoring, I was just doing what I could to get it upfield without hurting the team,” she said.

Haro’s goals came in the fifth and 41st minutes of the game.

Karlie Gonzalez scored the first goal in the fourth minute and a host of Bruins followed suit.

Jamie Macken, 18th minute; Hannah Leonard, 23rd minute; Molly Joyce, 35th minute; Mahalee Evans, 50th minute; Drew Farmer, 66th minute; Addie Fitzgerald, 68th minute; and Hanna Baron, 80th minute. 

“It was good to come back and have a win like this,” Head Coach Fred Juarez said. “It gets our confidence back up for our big game against Sutherlin next week.”

The Bruins allowed only three shots on goal as three separate goalies rotated through the position. Jessica McKee played the entire first half of the game in the box, before turning over duties to Hanna Goergen for the beginning of the second half. 

Freshman Brenna Clarke closed out the game, stopping two shots on goal to keep the shutout alive.

The Bruins will travel to South Umpqua on Tuesday. Game time is scheduled for 5 p.m.
