The Raiders downed Hug 6-0 to improve to 2-1, 2-0 in the HDL but coach Jason Saville said the score could have been much worse.
“We left a lot of goals on the field, missed a lot of open goals and were caught offside,” Saville said. “We had to set a school record for number of offside (penalties).”
Danielle Uptain filled in as the starting mid-center for the Raiders and scored in the third and 33rd minutes. She also added an assist in the 80th minute.
“Her vision was first class,” Saville said. “I’m sure she feels like she left some goals out there but I’m proud of her calm play and demeanor.”
Aubrie Ciesynski, who assisted Uptain’s first goal, scored the second goal of the game in the 17th minute and dished out her second assist of the contest on a Bailey Sambrano goal in the 47th minute.
Kendra Bujnozsky (71st minute) and Samantha King-Shaw (80th minute) scored the other two goals for Reed. Bujnozsky assisted Ciesynski’s goal in the 17th minute.
The dominating win allowed Saville to play several of the young players on his roster which features 11 sophomores and a freshman
“Everybody contributed to the win and that’s what we are about,” Saville said.
The Raiders are back in action Tuesday at home against Wooster.
