The Hilltop High School girls soccer team keeps on winning and that’s a must for the defending Mesa League champion Lancers in a league loaded with challengers this season.
Hilltop ran its 2010-11 league start to 3-0 following Tuesday’s key 2-1 victory at Bonita Vista High School. The Lancers received goals from Jessica Carrillo and Evelyn Navarro in posting their latest victory.
The Barons had entered the high profile encounter with a 2-0 league record following victories against Mater Dei Catholic (3-1 on Jan. 18) and Chula Vista (3-0 on Jan. 20).
Hilltop (10-1-3 overall) edged Otay Ranch, 1-0, in its league opener on Jan. 18 and followed with a 6-0 win against Chula Vista two days later. Nicole Wolfe and Blanca Marrujo each scored two goals to lead the Lancers while Jessica Valencia and Navarro each scored one goal. Goalkeeper Hannah Teague received credit for the shutout win.
Hilltop keeps rolling after capturing a division title at the Barons tournament in December, with its only blemish being a loss to Canyon Crest in the rain-soaked Otay Ranch tournament.
Bonita Vista improved to 8-4-4 following the victory over Chula Vista. Vanessa Davalos scored twice in that game while Devon Roncoroni scored once.
The Barons received single goals from Kiana Brevig, Roncoroni and Davalos in the win over MDC.
In the South Bay League, San Ysidro ran its winning streak to three games following Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over Mar Vista. The Cougars previously defeated Castle Park (5-1 on Jan. 18) and Montgomery (1-0 on Jan. 20).
Samantha Arellano led San Ysidro with five goals in the victory over Castle Park and scored one goal in each of the other two games. Priscilla Flores was credited with 19 saves in Tuesday’s win and made five saves in the shutout victory over Montgomery.
