The VVHS lady Bulldog soccer team clinched the 1-A Sunrise Conference title with a 3-0 defeat of archrival Moapa Valley High School Pirates Monday afternoon, Oct. 26 in Moapa. Bulldog forwards Karla Correa had two goals and Abbie Barnum had the other to lead the Dawgs. Correa, Dalylah Chavez and Barnum had an assist each for the Dawgs. Spencer Green registered her fourteenth shutout of the season.
Correa got the Dawgs a 1-0 advantage nine minutes in hitting goal on a deflection off a Pirate defender. Barnum hit Correa on a great crossover pass giving the Dawgs a 2-0 lead at the break. Barnum added the final goal on a long pass from Chavez, breaking free and crushing the shot.
“Our back line was solid again,” said Coach Bob Snell. “The kids played solid defense all year and are excited to be in the playoffs.”
The Dawgs will probably face Cheyenne from the Sunset Conference Monday. Nov. 2 at the ‘Betty Wilson Sports Complex’ at 6pm. The complex is next to Cimarron High School in Las Vegas. The Dawgs have one league game remaining hosting Boulder City Wednesday, Oct. 28 at the Mesquite Sports and Events Center.
