The Glenwood Ice U18 girls soccer team kicked off its fall season by hosting the Grand Mesa Fire United 16 at Gates Soccer Park last weekend. Glenwood’s incoming freshmen proved their mettle to their veteran teammates as the Ice shut out the Fire 11-0.

Hope Whitman started the scoring streak 13 minutes into the game when she took a pass from teammate Jackie Argueta up to and into the goal. Two minutes later, Whitman took the ball up the right side of the field for a second goal. Newcomer Aubrey Wolfe added a third goal midway through the half.

Fire’s keeper kept the Ice from scoring the next 20 minutes until Glenwood’s Mariah Martin managed a fourth goal. The half ended with Corey Gera rushing down center to kick the ball over the keeper’s head.

Glenwood continued its dominance in the second half, with Martin and Gera each scoring a second goal and Whitman netting a hat trick. Twins Savanna and Josi Pearson then scored back-to-back goals. Netty Stenstadvold finished the game with a penalty kick into the goal.
