Two straight wins is something the Bradshaw Mountain soccer Lady Bears haven't recorded in more than half a dozen years. They achieved that goal this past week.

This past Tuesday on their home pitch at Bob Pavlich Field in Prescott Valley, the Lady Bears dominated Kingman in their only game of the week, shutting out the Lady Bulldogs 5-0.

The Lady Bears led 2-0 at halftime after two quick goals. Junior Tayler Hancock put Bradshaw on the scoreboard after 34 minutes and 23 seconds of play. Less than a minute-and-a-half later, senior Nicole Pino scored the second goal.

In the second half, Hancock managed a hat trick on the night by scoring twice more, while Pino delivered another for a brace. Pino also recorded a pair of assists.

Fabiola Espinoza assisted on one of Pino's goals.

Bradshaw coach John Sterling conservatively estimated that the Lady Bears held possession 80 percent of the match, mainly in the attacking third of the field.

The Lady Bears combined for 50 shots in the game. Sterling said the team achieved exactly the international average of 10 shots per goal scored. Hannah Madler, Nia Baca, Heidi Madler, Kayla Hegland and Brianna Carroll added to the shot tally.

In contrast to the busy Kingman keeper, Bradshaw netminder Delaney Prestia handled the ball only eight times.

"The girls played brilliantly and I am extremely proud of their play and their dedication to working hard and improving with every game they have played. They have exceeded all of my expectations for the season," Sterling said.

Monday afternoon, the Coconino Lady Panthers edged the host Lady Bears 2-1 in overtime.

"It was one of those nights where you can't figure it out - the girls were just out of sync," Sterling said.

After a scoreless 40 minutes, Coconino went up 1-0 early in the second half. The Lady Bears tied it up when Hannah Madler assisted Tayler Hancock midway through the second period, ultimately sending the game into OT.

The visitors got the game-winner before the extra period expired.

Sterling said the same Coconino team beat Bradshaw 4-0 last year.

"We got beat by a very good Coconino team, but we're a much better team than the one that showed up," Sterling said.

Sterling promised the Lady Bears will come back strong when Prescott comes to Prescott Valley tomorrow for a 6 p.m. match.
