Douglas girls’ soccer falls at Galena, ties Damonte
The Tiger girls’ soccer team has yet to start a game with a lead this season and it finally caught up to them as the Grizzlies toppled Douglas, 4-0, Saturday, as the defending regional champs held serve on their home field.
Tuesday, Douglas fell behind 1-0 in the first half at Damonte Ranch.
However, once again it was the sophomore duo of Ava Coons and Aleeah Weaver up front that tied the contest in the second half. The game ended in a tie.
Coons had her initial shot blocked, but retreated a step or two to find Weaver.
Weaver’s first touch picked the ball off the ground, her next touch went off her knee and her third was a volley from 25 yards out that found the top right corner.
“It was the sophomore combo again,” said head coach Andrew Robles.
