“We just kind of talked about how we need to put a full 80 minutes together,” said Saugus coach Aly Drake. “We played probably a good 60 minutes of that game but toward the end, things started to get a little crazy. “We just have to get rid of the ball toward the end. When you see two minutes on the clock, you can’t let anything around the goal.” Saugus received a corner kick on its ensuing possession following Anderson’s goal. The Centurions were unable to muster a shot, though, as the final whistle rang in. “It’s a learning lesson for us,” Drake said. “We went from having three points to this game, to having one. That hurts in this league. We’re frustrated and we have to do better Friday.” Saugus (7-3-2, 0-0-1 Foothill League) will hit the road to play West Ranch on Friday and Valencia (4-2-4, 0-0-1) will travel to play Canyon. Hart 5, Golden Valley 0 Ruby Burroughs, Taylor Moorhead, Izabel Reyes, Isabela Penaranda and Alyssa Irwin each collected goals in the Indians’ league-opening win. Burroughs collected two assists as well, with Penaranda and Elizabeth MacArthur also recording assists. Canyon 2, West Ranch 0 Claudia McKail and Cynthia Valdez each scored to give the Cowboys a win in their league opener.
