Women’s Soccer

Tuesday

Elkin 3, Starmount 0: In Elkin, Deyonna Gonzales scored twice as the Lady Elks defeated the Rams.

Carla Fuentes also scored for Elkin. Makayla Dimmette and Emily Aldridge assisted on the first and second goals, respectively.

The game was much more competitive than the 6-0 Elkin win at Starmount earlier in the season.

“We started slow tonight,” said Elkin Coach Heath Foster. “We just played too much kickball tonight.

“We didn’t have a couple of starters tonight. We put girls in positions we haven’t had them in before. The non-starters stepped up tonight.”

“We had a couple of good runs but couldn’t finish them,” Starmount Coach Jered Markman said. “We had nine shots tonight. The last time we only had two.”

Markman singled out Jennifer Carranza, Selena Foster, and Liz Carasco for their play in the loss. Carranza and Carasco made their presence felt in midfield, while Foster was solid on defense. “These three stepped up,” Markman said.

Shots were 17-9 in favor of Elkin.
