Mallory Otto and Yanitzia Perez scored a goal apiece to lead Carson to a 2-0 win over Bishop Manogue in a 4A girls soccer match Tuesday at the Jim Frank Track and Field Complex.
Carson improved to 7-0-1 heading into Saturday’s match at Damonte Ranch.
“We came out and got the win,” said CHS coach Greg Lehman. “It wasn’t our best game by any standard. In a season there are going to be highs and lows. There are still some things we need to work on.
“This game (before Homecoming) is always tough. It’s a tough week. We have some (Homecoming) candidates from the team this year.”
Otto opened the scoring in the 11th minute after Brynn Lehman blasted a shot from 25 yards out that the Manogue keeper was unable to control, and Otto was there to blast home the rebound. She has now scored in every Carson game.
The score remained 1-0 until the 75th minute when Yanitzia Perez, off a pass from Valerie Sue Meyer, scored an insurance goal.
Carson outshot Manogue 12-3.
“They (Manogue) lost a lot of good players,” Lehman said.
