Middle school soccer team nets pair of wins Saturday

The middle school Phantoms won in a narrow 3-2 victory over Ash Fork and dealt Parks a 6-0 shutout in home soccer action last Saturday.

Against an evenly-matched Ash Fork, the score was 1-0 going into the half, with the headshot goal ­ her first ­ by by Madison Berry. Christian Baraga served up the other two goals in the second half.

Against Parks, Hailey Ingols scored the first goal with the assist by Jonathan Huff. Huff then scored twice, with assists from Molly Struble and Ingols. Jack Doryland scored one with the assist by Jake Harner, followed by a goal by Jerrith Foster, assisted by Luke Pergiel.

Head Coach Ken Hunter was in Pennsylvania to see sons Jesse and Miles playing college soccer, leaving Assistant Coach Angie Kissner at the helm. She said she was proud of the team's progress.

"They have grown so much more controlled," she said. "Their passes are crisp and very controlled and their aggressiveness has just skyrocketed."

The middle school season wraps up this weekend with conference finals in Seligman.
