Trojans girls soccer dominate Boulder City in non-league action

Junior Kaitlyn Carrington and junior Sydney Dennis each scored three goals apiece to lead the Trojans over Boulder City, 8-1, on Wednesday afternoon at home.

The Trojans (6-3 overall, Sunset League) took awhile to warm up.

“We were slow to start,” Trojans coach Julie Carrington said. “After they scored the first goal, then we started to see more offensive movement.”

The Eagles drew first blood within the first five minutes of the game for their only goal of the game.

Pahrump then answered with their first goal about 15 minutes into the game with a Dennis shot. Two more goals followed by Carrington and then Dennis again.

Dennis now has five goals on the season and Carrington has four.

In the second half, the Trojans dominated, scoring five more goals. The Eagles (1-3, Sunrise League) only had one shot on goal in the 40-minute half.

Grace Gundacker and Makenzie Lunato scored the other two goals for Pahrump. Carrington, Gundacker and Dennis also each had an assist.

Carrington told her girls after the game that the passing was “awesome.”

“I didn’t think we were ready for league until this game,” Carrington said.

Pahrump hosts Sunrise Mountain (0-2) to start league play on Monday at 3 p.m.
