The fifth-ranked Centennial girls soccer team converted its first three scoring opportunities en route to a dominating 5-1 victory over No. 11 Fallston yesterday at Centennial.
Sophomore midfielder Hayley Siegel had two goals and two assists, senior midfielder Beth Foley scored twice and sophomore forward Mandy Paizs contributed a goal and two assists, as Centennial (2-0-1) erased the memory of Friday's 2-2 tie with the Institute of Notre Dame. In that game, the Eagles squandered a boatload of scoring chances.
"We didn't come out ready to go and it was a big wake-up call for us," said Foley, who scored both of her goals in the game's first 15 minutes and then moved back to defense to help preserve the Centennial lead. "We wanted to get it going right away, and that's exactly what we did."
Foley's first goal came just over five minutes into the game, when she beat two Cougars defenders to the middle of the box and hit a left-footed shot past goalkeeper Kendie Bauer.
About three minutes later, Siegel controlled a Tess Wallace pass and lifted a shot from six yards out over the head of Bauer and into the top netting .
