Girls Soccer: Clippers Shut Out United

Sturgeon Bay’s girls soccer team won and also scored for the first time this season when the Clippers shut out Sevastopol/Gibraltar, 2-0, in Thursday’s Packerland Conference match at Clark Field.

Malaya Martinez scored both of Sturgeon Bay’s goals in the fourth and 50th minutes. The Clippers outshot the United, 14-4.

“We are finally starting to create better chances to score by getting the ball into dangerous spaces in front of our opponent’s goal,” said Sturgeon Bay head coach Bob Desotelle. “Malaya Martinez played really well [Thursday night] at forward, as did our entire midfield, and Maddie Hemminger was brilliant on defense.”

The Clippers, who improved to 1-1 in the conference and 1-3-2 overall, next play a non-conference road game Friday night against Appleton North.
