The fresh legs were noticeable from the onset as Snake River dominated play throughout the contest, winning 4-0 over a game American Falls squad.
"The 2 game a week schedule is going to help us," Snake River head coach Randy Turpin said. "We played a much better team game today and the hard work that we have been putting into practice showed because the newer kids are really picking it up."
Working against the wind in the first half of play, the Lady Panthers showed no difficulties, tallying 3 goals in the half while allowing just four shots on goal from the visitors.
In the second half, the defensive effort was even better as the Snake River goal keeper was very lonely with no shots on goal for the entire second half of play.
"Defensively our line is very strong and for the whole game the entire team played their positions very well which helped out the defensive effort as a whole," coach Turpin said. "I was impressed with them as a team."
A goal in the 45th minute of play by the Lady Panthers painted the final 4-0 score.
Snake River (10-1, 2-0) will travel too Aberdeen today for a 3:30 showdown with the Lady Tigers.
