Despite fielding one of the youngest teams in recent memory, the Virgin Valley High School Lady Bulldog soccer squad is peaking going into the 3A playoffs. The Bulldogs ended league play with a 5-0 thumping of Chaparral High School Wednesday Oct 24 in Las Vegas. With the win the Bulldogs are guaranteed a first or second seed in 3A Southern Division playoffs beginning Wednesday Oct.31 at Bettye Wilson Park in Las Vegas. The Bulldogs and coleader Sunrise Mountain will be tied for the top spot in the Sunrise Conference if the Miners defeat Sky Pointe in their last match with 8-2 records. The Miners would get the top seed as they have a point differential in their games with the Dawgs. The Bulldogs game with the Miners found the Dawgs spreading the scoring amongst four Dawgs. Rainee Brito continued her late season scoring with 2 goals and an assist to lead the Bulldogs. Carla Correa, Jaynie Hulet and Raeanna Slack had the other goals. Hulet and Slack each had an assist. Goalkeeper Erin Ofori registered her fifth shutout of the season. The Dogs were 10-6-1 overall and their strong JV squad finished with 40 goals in only 8 games. “Our girls are meshing real well together,” said Bulldog head coach Scott Trimming. “The girls know if they play with their heart and desire they can win state.” The Dawgs first round opponent should be Sunset Conference third place finisher Valley High School who finished with a 3-4-1 conference record.
