Girls’ soccer: Saugus beats Valencia, 2-0 

The Saugus Centurions girls’ varsity soccer team opened Foothill League play on Tuesday with a 2-0 win at home against the Valencia Vikings.  

Saugus and Valencia traded chances in the first half with both keepers coming up with some big saves to keep the game knotted at zero heading into halftime.  

The second half started much like the first half with the teams trading chances and both defenses and keepers turning away chances. With 25 minutes remaining in the game, Alina Bench collected a ball on the right side and sent a cross into the box where Ryan Shepherd challenged for the ball and it bounced out to Alyssa Edwards. Edwards’ shot went off the keeper directly to Madi Robbins, who buried a shot into the back of the net to give the Centurions a 1-0 lead.  

With a little over 12 minutes remaining in the game, Saugus struck again off a throw-in from Micah Sheff. The ball found the feet of MacKenzie Jones, who sent a shot high and off the crossbar and into the goal to give Saugus the 2-0 lead.  

Saugus was led by a strong defense of Alina Bench, Trinity Burroughs, Natalie Quezada and Micah Sheff along with Rebecca Lim in goal (7 saves).

Girls’ soccer: Saugus beats West Ranch, 2-0 

The Saugus Centurions girls’ soccer team got a measure of revenge from last year by beating the West Ranch Wildcats 2-0 at home.  

After a scoreless first half, Saugus got a goal midway through the second half in transition when Alyssa Edwards crossed a ball into the box and Madi Robbins banged it into the net.  

Edwards then scored the second goal for the Centurions for the 2-0 lead.  

West Ranch had plenty of opportunities but Saugus goalkeeper Rebecca Lim made some great saves to preserve the shutout.
