Stansbury wrapped up a mercy-rule victory against Grantsville early in the second half when Katrina Clausing kicked home the 10th goal from 20 yards out.
This was the first region game of the season with the Stallions beating the Cowboys 10-0. Seven different Stallions scored goals on the day, including two goals from top goal-scorer Michaela Didericksen.
The first goal came when Didericksen passed off to Rachel Prescott, who punched it into the net from about 10 yards out for a 1-0 lead. After a save attempt by Grantsville, Prescott managed to get the ball through, and it slowly rolled across the line for the 2-0 lead.
Didericksen then scored her first goal of the game on a long shot. She set up from 25 yards out and launched a kick that smacked off the right post and into the goal for 3-0.
Jenny Munoz then got involved with a tough-angled shot from the right side. She kicked it across, and the ball sailed over the defense and into the left side of the net, and the Stallions led 4-0. Munoz then dished off a pass to Didericksen, who scored her second goal of the game for 5-0.
Cierra Golden just missed getting on the scoreboard herself when her shot from 20 yards out clanked off the top post and out-of-bounds.
Grantsville’s best opportunity to score came after a corner kick. Amanda Farr got the ball after it was kicked around in the box, and she shot the ball high and out-of-bounds.
Stansbury then went back on the offensive end. Paris Matravers got her head on a high ball and directed it toward the net. It bounced once and then scored for a 6-0 lead. The referee then called a foul on the Cowboys on a later possession in the goal box, giving the Stallions a penalty kick. Bret Wilkinson lined up for the PK and kicked it home into the left side of the net for a 7-0 lead. Finally, halftime arrived.
But the Stallions wasted no time getting back into the scoring. Breanna Mears launched a shot from down in the right corner, and the ball had just the right curve as it sailed into the net for an 8-0 Stansbury lead.
Grantsville then had a defensive miscue where the ball got away and went into its own net, giving Stansbury a 9-0 lead. That’s when Clausing finished up the scoring-fest with her 20-yard goal.
The Stallions get the week off before hitting the road to face Ben Lomond on Tuesday. The Cowboys hosted Ben Lomond Thursday afternoon.
