Girls' Soccer: Freitas' four goals power Lady Tigers

The Douglas girls' soccer team flexed some of its offensive muscle Tuesday afternoon against North Valleys, riding four goals off the foot of Ally Freitas to an 8-0 win.

The win pushed Douglas' season record to 8-2 overall and 5-0 in Sierra League play. The Tigers also extended their win streak to seven.

Douglas got on the board early as Michelle Day slipped in behind the defense on a breakaway clear and put the ball past the Panthers' keeper in the fourth minute.

Freshman Alex Laing looped a beautiful corner kick around the cross bar for an impressive goal in the 11th minute and then made a nice cross in the 21st minute that Freitas was able to one-touch in for her first goal of the day.

Laing scored on a direct kick two minutes later after being dragged down just outside the box and then assisted Freitas on her second goal as Freitas fired a rocket into the far corner in the 25th minute.

Freitas put her third goal on the half in during the 34th minute for a 6-0 lead.

Forward Tianna Gregory scored in the 58th minute and Freitas capped her career day with her fourth goal in the 80th minute.

Douglas controlled possession for the majority of the game, thanks to the strong play of its midfielders, highlighted by Lisa Christen, Dany Heidt, Mackenzie Cauley, Sarah Hartley, Breanna Norvell and Krista Anderson.

When North Valleys was able to break through, the defense of C.J. Baumgartner, Sage Lyons, Marisa Bertolone-Smith and Kelly D'Amico was cool under pressure, bringing the Panthers under wraps.

Goalie Jamie Greer posted four saves and combined with Christy Harvey for the shutout, marking Greer's seventh of the season and fifth in the last six games.

Douglas travels to top-ranked South Tahoe on Saturday.
