The White Pine High girls’ soccer team won its lone game last weekend in West Wendover by a score of 4-0.
White Pine got off to a slow start against the Wolverines scoring just once in the first half with a goal from Sam Gamberg. After halftime the Cats scored three more goals courtesy of Lilly Fullmer, Sage Dutson and Shawn Petersen, and completed its eleventh shutout of the season in convincing fashion.
“We are starting to find a groove, a few younger girls have moved back to help as defensive midfielders and they are playing great” said keeper Hannah Barber who has allowed a league low of 7 goals this season. The solid backbone of the defense is made up of two seniors Delaney Marich and Alicia Pascascio along with sophomore Brenna Williams. They don’t always get the credit they deserve” said Laity, “They have worked hard to protect their keeper and they are always working hard to get that shutout.”
White Pine will not have to travel this weekend, instead they will play their last home games of the year for homecoming against two 3A schools Dayton (2-4-1) and Fernley (4-2-2).
“The girls have played great all year at home and I know they will come ready to play this weekend. Homecoming is a fun but tough week for any sports teams, there are so many activities and other distractions throughout the week, but I know the girls will come to show everyone what we are made of,” said coach Tylar Laity.
The Ladycats are 9-0-1 at home this year and have outscored opponents 53 to 5 on their home turf.
