Canby girls cap soccer week with 8-0 win
Canby's girls soccer week was an interesting one. The Cougars battled with Lakeridge Monday in a contest that saw chances saved and opportunities thwarted in a 0-0 tie.
On Thursday, the Cougars offense unleashed itself upon Gresham in a non-league tilt. Canby (0-1-3 league, 2-2-3 overall) came away from the road match with an 8-0 win.
"This week we started of strong with a tough game against Lakeridge," head coach Maria VanAcker said. "The girls did a great job working together and staying tough throughout the game. The defense had a knockout game and kept Lakeridge off the scoreboard. Kenna Kraft had some great saves to keep a clean sheet."
Against Gresham, Canby was able to control the tempo and played most of the match in the Gopher's end. Canby got two goals each from Joey Baguio and Ellie Shorter to lead the offense. Also delivering goals were Claire Hanthorn, Brittany Rodriguez, Zoe Thompson and Kathryn Fentress.
"We also had great performances from Catalina Slangan and Elizabeth Hanthorn in the midfield, Mallory Block in defense, and Ally Mead at forward," VanAcker said.
Up this was a Monday tilt against Lake Oswego, followed by a Wednesday visit from West Linn.
