GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra opened its Sierra Delta League home schedule Tuesday, blanking Encina 7-0 after three, first-half goals and four in the second.
The wind-swept victory improved the Grizzlies to 2-1 in league. Golden Sierra came in after hosting last weekend’s Grizzly Cup Classic, won by Union Mine.
Against the Bulldogs, Melissa Comstock scored a hat trick to lead the Griz. She and Alexa Chiaratti traded assists to the other for the early 2-0 advantage before Tristan Nedeigh pushed one through for a 3-0 halftime lead.
Erin Anderson’s breakaway, a Breeze Baiz goal and two more from Comstock assisted by Olivia Costin and Rachel Hansen accounted for the second half scoring.
Grizzly goalie Jenna Matyac faced very few shots.
“We tried to slow the scoring down — I like to stop it at six,” first-year girls coach Trenton Mol said. “We’re still working on learning a different style and every game we’re getting better.”
