Galt High girls soccer won their first home match against Stagg High School last Tuesday. The score was 2-1 with two sophomores, Monica Valencia and Morgan Erman, scoring those goals.

Sophomore goalie Kylee Chapman had three saves and was scored on during a penalty kick.

Returning head coach Oscar Corona has a young but talented team with only three seniors this year. When asked what his strategy was for beating Stagg, Corona responded, “We do a lot of possession, but I think we could be a little more dangerous if we were to keep those players up on top a little more. Right now they move the ball well, but we need more vertical; otherwise, it’s going to be just beautiful.  It’s a very young team with six freshmen and five sophomores. I am being very objective with how the program is going to go next year, and I am very excited for this season as we build.

Starting freshman Bayley Miller was asked how it feels to be on varsity and get their first win at home.

“It feels amazing,” said Miller. “I am so happy that we got this win. It feels really good. I am looking forward to bonding with everyone on the team and getting close with all the seniors, and basically learning to work as a team.”

The Warriors have a 5-2 win record so far this season: beat McNair 8-0, lost to Monterey Trail 4-0, beat Stagg 2-1, beat Escalon 3-2, beat Franklin of Stockton 6-1, lost to Central Catholic 4-0, and beat Weston Ranch 3-0.

League play will begin Jan. 3 when they play Rosemont at home.
