The Bruins girls soccer team continues to dominate their new league with another solid win against the Douglas Trojans at 6-0 on Tuesday. They’re currently on a six-game winning streak with only a single loss against Eureka this season to mar their record.
“We came to get the job done and our girls managed to stay composed despite some referee calls that seemed unfair for both sides,” said Bruins coach Kyla Siri. “We did a good job of finding each other after they found who to stick on us and managed to get the ball to our key players.”
The Bruins are 3-0 in league so far in first place of their league. At 6-1 overall they are ranked No. 16 in the OSAA 3A/2A/1A rankings.
The Bruins and Trojans were evenly matched at first with neither team having scored by the 20-minute mark of the first half, but the Bruins found their footing soon after and put two balls into the net before the end of the half.
Starting the second half at 2-0, the Bruins soon gained the advantage and started maintaining consistent possession of the ball. They scored quickly after starting the second half and kept up their offensive efforts consistently throughout, scoring three more points to end at a solid 6-0.
Anna Cerna and Sandra Sullivan led the Bruins in goals this game with two each while Avana Pettus and Laisha Olmedo brought in one each.
Siri was impressed with the team’s whopping 37 shots on goal and said that the team is getting more physical and consistently playing past adversity as the season winds on.
“We had some opportunities we could have capitalized on more, but that’s going to come with working on our skills in practice,” Siri said. “We played strong defensively. They had some chances to score on corner kicks, but we did our job and got another shutout.”
According to Siri, one of the Bruins greatest strengths right now is their ability to keep their composure and focus during games and their ability to communicate well during games.
The Bruins travel to play the Sutherlin Bulldogs tomorrow in a league game. According to to Siri, Sutherlin is one of the few teams the Bruins don’t have a lot of info on this year and they currently sit right below the Bruins at second place in the league.
“We’ll treat them just like anyone else, just like we played St. Bernard’s. We’ll just keep looking for creative ways to score from here on out.”
