Varsity Girls Soccer
Gunn 2, Saratoga 0
Date of competition: Friday, December 19, 2008
Gunn senior Nikki Bahlman continued her torried scoring streak by scoring both goals in a 2-0 SCVAL El Camino Division soccer victory over visiting Saratoga on Friday evening.
The Titans (2-0, 4-5-1) now head into the holiday break tied for first place. Gunn will resume play Jan. 7 against Wilcox.
In the Saratoga match, the first half was scoreless despite several good chances generated by Gunn. A seemingly valid goal created by Eleanor Greely’s follow up on a loose ball bobbled by the keeper was called off for a foul.
Undeterred, Gunn quickly scored in the first five minutes of the second half. Erin Robinson alertly intercepted an errant pass intended for a Saratoga wide midfielder. Running quickly down the left line, Robinson served a precise cross to the far post for Bahlman, who finished for a 1-0 lead.
Seven minutes later, Gunn struck again in similar fashion. Mariah Cannon served a free kick to the left side, which Robinson again collected and crossed to Bahlman to finish for the second goal.
