RENO — The biggest news from the Carson-Wooster girls soccer match was Carson’s defense finally gave up a goal after posting six straight shutouts.
Carson got goals from Melissa Glanzmann, Chantal Torres, Mayra Olivares and Lauren Hudak en route to a 4-1 Sierra League soccer win Tuesday afternoon over the Colts to remain undefeated.
Carson upped its record to 5-0-2 heading into Saturday’s match at Galena.
The Senators scored twice in the first six minutes.
Glanzmann scored on a through ball from Bailie Zuber in the third minute, and Torres took a pass from Hudak and scored in the sixth minute to make it 2-0.
It was the start of a dominant half for the Senators, who had 16 shots on goal in the opening 40 minutes.
Olivares made it 3-0 when she took a pass from Torres and dribbled past several Wooster defenders to score in the 33rd minute for a 3-0 lead.
“The first half we played really well,” Carson coach Greg Lehman said. “We really moved the ball around; all the way around. We had three quality goals and could have had more. I was happy with the way we played in the first half.”
The second half? Not so much.
Wooster ended Carson’s shutout streak five minutes into the second half on a nice 30-yard shot to make it 3-1. Hudak completed the scoring when she took a cross from Karla Reyes and scored in the 73rd minute.
“We got complacent in the second half,” Lehman said.
“Our intensity disappeared.”
