KIRTLAND — Three different girls scored three goals in Kirtland Central's soccer win Thursday night.
Forwards Deena Charley, Tamia Maryboy and Zoey Hooper all had hat tricks in the Lady Broncos' 9-0 victory against Bloomfield at Bronco Stadium.
"The three forwards all played very well together," said Kirtland Central head coach Leonel Camacho.
Kirtland Central (8-2) has two games remaining against Valencia and then plays at Bloomfield again before beginning District 1-4A play at Piedra Vista on Oct. 8.
"We are getting ready to start the district season soon. We have two more games to play, and then we will see," Camacho said. "We look forward to getting ready for that this year."
Bloomfield fell to 1-6 this year with the loss. The Lady Bobcats have scored just four times this season while surrendering 30.
The Lady Bobcats will play their District 1-3A opener Saturday at Taos.
Aztec 9, Miyamura 0
The Lady Tigers poured in nine more goals Thursday in Gallup.
Aztec improved to 12-0 this season with a 9-0 victory at Miyamura.
Lacy Garcia scored three goals and had an assist for Aztec, while Hailey Morris and Jessica Kresl each scored two goals. Emily McDonald and Tezz Fernandez each had one goal.
Morris leads the state, regardless of classification, with 25 goals and 62 total points this season. Garcia and Kresl are both in the top-four in points in 4A, and, as a team, Aztec has seven girls in the top-20 in points scored in 4A.
The No. 2-ranked Lady Tigers are off until Oct. 5 when they will travel to play No. 1 St. Pius X.
"Well, we will begin to prepare for St. Pius," said Aztec head coach Stephen Parks when asked what his team would do with the next two weeks off. "Practice will probably be pretty intense for the next several practices so we don't have any letdowns, but I feel like this team can handle it. They are extremely competitive so I have no doubt that they will be ready to play when it's time."
Bayfield 3, Aztec 1
Colorado's Bayfield High School gave Aztec a tough volleyball match on Thursday.
Bayfield (7-2) defeated the Lady Tigers (6-2) in four games, winning 25-23, 25-22, 22-25 and 25-15.
"We didn't win, but it was a good game," said Aztec head coach Anna Strauss. "Aubrey Folk had a great game with 11 kills and eight blocks."
Folk went toe-to-toe with Bayfield junior Kirstie Hillyer, a 6-foot-5 middle blocker and outside hitter.
"It was good to play good competition, and it was really fun to see a 6-foot-5 girl and a 6-foot-3 girl go against each other," Strauss said.
Bayfield's only two losses have come to Piedra Vista and Farmington, two of Aztec's District 1-4A opponents.
"I think we got Bayfield on a bad day because they struggled with PV and Farmington. They were very determined," Strauss said. "They served us tough."
Aztec is off until next Tuesday when it will travel to Miyamura.
Bloomfield 3, Grants 0
Grants worked past the Bloomfield volleyball team with ease on Thursday.
The Pirates defeated the Lady Bobcats in three games, taking the sets 25-15-25-15 and 25-13.
"We are still trying to find our personality," said Bloomfield head coach Tami Bekes. "It will take time. We just have to keep working."
Bloomfield won't have to wait long to play again. The Lady Bobcats host a tournament this weekend beginning today.
Shiprock 3, Gallup 0
The Lady Chieftains picked up a win against a 4A opponent on Thursday.
Shiprock (2-4) defeated Gallup (1-6) in three games, winning 25-19, 25-18, 25-23.
"What impressed me was that they were down in the third game by nine points, and they were able to come together and fight back for the win," said Shiprock head coach Rae Collins.
Melyssa Harwood led Shiprock with nine kills. Katura Garcia had another eight kills and Ashley John had five. Mariah Lee had 26 assists, and Arantxa Curley had nine.
Both of Shiprock's wins have now come against Gallup.
The Lady Chiefs will travel to play Farmington High on Tuesday.
Crownpoint 3, Navajo Prep 0
The Lady Eagles suffered their first district loss of the season Thursday night on the road in Crownpoint.
Crownpoint defeated Navajo Prep in straight sets 25-17, 25-18 and 25-12.
"We got off to a slow start, and Crownpoint took off and kept the momentum the whole game," said Navajo Prep head coach Rainy Crisp. "They wanted this game. They had great fan support and took us out of our game very early."
Leshauntai Adams led Navajo Prep (5-2, 1-1 District 1-2A) with eight kills. The Lady Eagles were without two players due to academic priorities, including sophomore Jasmine Coleman, who leads the team in kills.
Navajo Prep will play again next Tuesday at Ramah.John Livingston can be reached at email@example.com; 505-564-4648. Follow him on Twitter @jlivi2.
