The goal came in the very first minute of the match Thursday night.
Newport Harbor High girls’ soccer junior Skylynn Rodriguez played the ball ahead to senior Mackenzee Blaser on the right side. Blaser’s cross went in to sophomore Reese Bodas, who put the shot away.
With the way the Sailors have been playing defense, one goal proved more than enough against visiting Woodbridge. Bodas and senior co-captain Emily Johnson did add goals later on, as Newport Harbor earned a 3-0 nonleague victory at Newport Harbor High.
Coach Justin Schroeder’s Sailors stayed undefeated at 6-0-2. They could have scored several more goals, but did not get frustrated as several shots hit the post or crossbar. Bodas certainly struck early.
“It was cool,” Bodas said. “We’ve been working on building up to goals. It came on a hard and low cross, and that’s one of our big things this season, hard and low crosses. Scoring in the first minute, that just shows how ready we were.” Click here to read more.
