Spanish Springs had no problem with Hug on the road Saturday cruising to a 6-0 win to remain undefeated at 5-0 in girls prep soccer action..

Coach Mike Faker played his starters for the first 20 minutes before giving valuable playing time to his bench.

"It was good for us in that respect," Faker said.

In a feel good moment, Hannah Pointer scored her first goal of the season in the 65th minute after tearing her ACL in the first game last year.

Makayla Long (10'), Jessey Van Lueven (27'), Audrey Barham (38') and Alyssa Kruger (39' and 50') scored the Cougar's other goals as Spanish Springs out-shot Hug 28-3.

Despite the unblemished start to 2013, Faker said he does not care about his team's record.

"We want to win the division," Faker said. "That's the big thing."

The Cougars continue their march toward a league title Tuesday at home against McQueen.

•Reed coach Jason Saville and his Raiders were saddled with a 2-2 tie at McQueen Saturday afternoon despite feeling that RHS team "totally dominated."

Holding a 2-1 lead in the 75th minute, the Reed center defender and goalie miscommunicated, which resulted in an obstruction call, warranting an indirect free kick which McQueen took advantage of.

Saville didn't think particularly highly of McQueen's first goal in the 32nd minute, which was also a result of a miscommunication, either.

"They were both pretty soft goals to give up," Saville said.

Aubrie Ciesynski put Reed up 1-0 in the 16th minute off an assist from Ali Miller. Kenady Whitehead snuck one past the McQueen keeper in the 46th minute off an assist from Danielle Uptain to put Reed up 2-1 before the 75th-minute lapse.

Saville said his team hit the woodwork four separate times throughout the game and had two scoring opportunities after McQueen's late tying goal but was unable to capitalize.

"We have to do a better job of putting the ball in the back of the net when given the opportunity," Saville said. "It was a frustrating day but we'll get over it. We'll move on."

Reed now sits at 3-1-1 and hosts North Valleys Tuesday.
