BARSTOW - When the Barstow High School girl's soccer team took Langworthy field Thursday afternoon, revenge was on their mind after their last meeting with Granite Hills turned out to be a complete lop-sided affair of 8-0.

Starting a new keeper, and changing up their starting formation, Barstow's defense was going to be key, if they wanted to pull out a victory against their opposition, said coach Jackie Cooper.

Early on Granite Hills (11-5-2) dominated the game, controlling most of the possession and taking several shots on goal. The Cougars won 4-0 at Langworthy Field.

"We played good, we had to bounce back after our loss to Silverado," Granite Hills striker Kristine Posek said.

After a few key saves, Posek struck first in the 27th minute after the ball flopped around the box, Posek would find the back of the net. Minutes later after Barstow (4-10-3) was able to get their first shot off, a miss-timed shot, rolled through Barstow's goal keeper's hand, allowing Granite Hills to take a 2-0 into the halftime break.

The game didn't change much as the second half whistle blew, Granite stayed on top of the ball, not allowing Barstow any chance back into the game. Play continued on in the mid-field passing the ball back and forth, until a pass found a wide open Emily Ochoa. She would in turn find the back of the net, taking the Cougars lead up to 3-0.

After a push in the back, the referee gave Granite Hills a penalty kick. Posek stepped up, and placed the ball past the keeper, and Granite Hills increased their lead to 4-0.

"We won, we came here with that goal in mind, and we got the job done today," Granite Hills head coach Mike Bradbury said.

As the game strolled into the final ten minutes, the Aztecs were able to start passing the down field, and almost got on the board. After receiving a corner kick, Carrie Gonzales' header would just go a little wide.

"The girls played much better today. After a few rough outings, we played with much improvement. Despite the score our defense played well," Copper said.
