FARMINGTON — The Piedra Vista girls soccer team rolled to a 4-1 win over Valley Friday at the Piedra Vista soccer fields.

"We're still working on some things, but all our goals came off things we've been working on," PV head coach Adam Huff said. "The girls played well, as a whole."

PV's first goal came on a corner kick when Andi Johnson's ball into the box hit off a Valley defender and deflected in.

Makeyan Kalmbach and LisaMarie Jones each added a goal in the first half, and Hannah Sayyeau scored in the second half.

The Lady Panthers will host Del Norte today at 1 p.m.

Farmington 2, Hope Christian 0

Farmington is heading to the championship match at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational after knocking off Hope Christian 2-0.

"It was a tremendous game, very competitive," FHS head coach Shannon Gill said. "It was a great opportunity to build as a team and play at a quicker pace, and just come together to play a great ball game, as did Hope."

Arin Coleman and Hannah Kelly scored the two goals for FHS. Alissa Montoya recorded an assist in the win.

The win moves the Lady Scorps into the finals, where they'll face Aztec today at 10 a.m.

Aztec 2, Albuquerque Academy 0

Aztec kept rolling at the Albuquerque Academy Invitational, topping Academy 2-0 in the semifinals.

"It was a good game all the way through. Everyone contributed," Aztec head coach Kelly Kelso said.

Kinsey Gomez scored a goal in the first half, and Ashlyn Bradley delivered the dagger in the second half.

The win moves Aztec into the tournament's final against rival Farmington.

"Academy was a test to see where we're at, and we passed that test. Outside of St. Pius, that's the best team we've played this year," Kelso said. "Now, we're looking forward to Farmington."

Rehoboth Christian 3, Navajo Prep 0

The Lady Eagles dropped to 2-4 on the season when they lost to the Rehoboth Christian Lynx 3-0 on the road Friday in a contest that was scoreless at halftime.

Navajo Prep coach Stacy Irwin said he saw a lot of positives out of his team Friday.

"We've been working with a new formation, and the girls are starting to understand it better, "Irwin said. "We are playing higher on the pitch and are starting to shoot more."

Navajo Prep has been doing a better job of getting shots on goal of late, according to Irwin. Although they didn't score, Naaki Brown and Kelly Charley put a lot of pressure on Rehoboth's netminder. Irwin said his forwards are also improving by the day.

"Kylie Begay and Audrey Shorty are starting to get better control of the ball on fast breaks," he said.

Sandia Prep 9, Bloomfield 0

Bloomfield has struggled to score so far in 2015, and those struggles continued Friday when the team was shut out 9-0 by Sandia Prep.

The Lady Bobcats (1-5) have scored one goal or fewer in each of their five losses.

"We had a hard time getting to the ball first in the first half," Bloomfield coach Shannon Nygren said. "We played much better in the second half."

Down 6-0 at halftime, the Lady Bobcats allowed only three scores after the break.

Nygren said her team did a better job of passing and communicating as the game went on.

Bloomfield will turn its attention to Bosque for a 4 p.m. home game today.
