FARMINGTON — The Farmington girls soccer team picked up a pair of dominating wins at the Taos Tournament, handling Bosque 5-1, then Clovis 5-0 Friday.

"We started off real slow," FHS head coach Shannon Gill said of the Bosque match. "We had some early opportunities, but once we got the first goal, we kind of settled down and started playing more relaxed."

Four girls found the net for the Lady Scorps (3-0) in the win over Bosque (0-1-1). Hannah Kelly netted two, while Alissa Montoya, Narcissa Fowler and Mikayla Aragon put in a goal each.

Mackenzie Coleman recorded three assists in the win, and Montoya picked up an assist to go with her goal.

Against Clovis (1-1), Kelley recorded a hat trick, finding the back of the net three times.

Coleman added the other two goals for the Lady Scorps. Raimi Clark, Montoya and Aragon each had an assist in the win.

"The girls played well and are beginning to mesh," Gill said.

Boys soccer
Goddard 2, Piedra Vista 0

The Piedra Vista boys took a tough loss in the Panthers' opening game at the Los Alamos Tournament, falling 2-0 to Goddard (2-0).

"It did not go as we planed," PV head coach Pat Denney said. "The boys played an excellent soccer game, but we couldn't find the back of the net. We probably had two shots to every one of theirs in the first and second half. The boys played a very, very good game. It's an unfortunate loss."

Denney said a few of his players suffered injuries during the match and the rest of the weekend in Los Alamos could mean more challenges for the Panthers (0-4).

Farmington 2, Santa Fe Prep 1

The Farmington boys split their two games at the Los Alamos tournament Friday, falling to Roswell 2-1 in overtime, then bouncing back to top Santa Fe Prep 2-1 after winning the shootout 5-4.

The overtime loss to Roswell (2-0) came on a penalty kick.

Yosmar Ruiz scored the Scorps' lone goal in the match.

Against Santa Fe Prep, Ruiz gave the Scorps a 1-0 lead in the first half, but the Blue Griffins (0-4) answered in the second on a set-piece goal to tie things at 1, sending the match to overtime and eventually to the penalty kick shootout.

FHS head coach Byron Farnsworth said freshman goalie Memphis Toledo "came up big (and) saved the third shot to give us the edge" in the shootout.

The Scorps (1-1) will continue play at the tournament today, meeting Clovis (3-0) at 2 p.m.
