The Maggie Mustangs opened the Okanagan Valley 2A senior girls soccer season with a 2-1 win over the Oliver Hornets on April 20.
The Mustangs took advantage of playing at home to score early and carried the majority of possession. Taylor Reeder scored off a corner kick and Bleranda Vrenzi slotted a great finish off a pass from Kalyna Rupert.
The Mustangs hit two cross bars and one goal post, while the Oliver goalkeeper made several good saves in the second half to keep the score close. The Mustangs received strong defence from Alyse and Lauren Kohler Mergel, combined with strong central play from Emma Roos and Vanessa Edis to stifle the Hornets attack.
The Mustangs return to action in Summerland when they take on the Rockets Tuesday at 4 p.m. The Mustangs next home game is May 4 against the Rockets.
