GARDEN VALLEY — Golden Sierra extended its win streak to four after defeating San Juan 2-0 Tuesday in Garden Valley.

The Grizzlies scored twice in succession, two-thirds into the match. The victory came at a price as Alexa Chiaratti suffered a hip injury.

Jockeying for position in the Sierra Delta League standings, Golden Sierra (6-3-1) had trouble with the stubborn Spartan defense which constantly denied the Griz attack led by Erin Anderson, Breeze Baiz, Jazmine Lutey-Willard and Robin Moore.

Tuesday’s match featured a Grizzly and Spartan hooking cleats, a halftime prom proposal and plenty of defense. Golden Sierra’s backfield of Elise Wilson, Jenna Matyac, Laura Russel, Olivia Costin and Sage McArthur with help from Rachel Hansen and others in front of goalie Jenna Pendzinski weren’t seriously challenged.

The Grizzlies won nine corner kicks on the afternoon and nearly converted on the first.

As the match entered its last 20 minutes of play, a 0-0 outcome loomed large but instantly changed when Kaitlyn Swatski gained control and let a 30-yard shot fly back toward the goal that settled inside the far post.

With the lead and renewed energy, Baiz jumped on a deflection for a run on goal and close-range blast under the San Juan goalie as the Grizzlies bumped to a 2-0 advantage, one more than they’d need to secure the win.

Hansen was credited with assists on both scores.
