Lady Panthers hold on for win over South Fremont
Snake River's Dishana Aleilty and South Fremont's McKayla Stoddard prepare to ball for the ball while the Panthers' Yazmine Martinez (10) and Jetta Goff (4) and the Cougars' Halee Stoddard (14) await the outcome during Wednesday's non-conference girls' soccer game.
THOMAS â€” Snake River's offensive players spent a lot of time in front of South Fremont's goal on Wednesday.
But it took Scout Baldwin's rebound shot in the 70th minute to give the Panthers a 1-0 win over the Cougars in non-conference girls' soccer action.

Of course, it also took a solid defensive effort to ensure the Snake River victory.
"Our goalkeeper, Jessie Adams, has only played half of yesterday's game (a 3-0 loss to North Fremont) and today," noted coach Randy Turpin. "But she's willing to learn.
"We also got solid defensive play from Kaylee Hansen, Julie Bell, Kaeley Shawver, Darcy Polatis and Baldwin," Turpin continued.
Until Baldwin's shot, the Panthers had opportunity after opportunity but couldn't finish.
"We're inexperienced," Turpin said. "The kids are in a learning curve. But they did a good job communicating and shared the ball well."
The Panthers will see the Cougars again next Wednesday when they travel to St. Anthony. Game time is 4 p.m.
