High school girls soccer: Ridgeline ends Skyline’s 20-game win streak

American Fork 1, Bingham 0

American Fork suffered through its first losing season since 2011 last year, but coach Derek Dunn’s team is ready to turn the page after a nice season-opening win over Bingham on Tuesday.

Presley Ray scored a first-half goal on an assist from Lucy Kesler, and the defense made it hold up as the Cavemen edged Bingham for the 1-0 win.

“We looked good tonight. Super fun to get back on the field and compete against Bingham. The girls are taking last year’s experiences and using them already this year. They played hard. They stayed together and they did a great job of making it hard for Bingham to get a clean shot off. In all a great starter game and we will continue to get better everyday,” said Dunn.

Lone Peak 5, Alta 2

Lone Peak flexed its muscles in Tuesday’s season opener and showed why it was voted the preseason No. 1 in 6A.

Lone Peak scored three goals in the first half and then tacked on two more in the second half as it rolled to the comfortable 5-2 victory over Alta. Bella Devey led the way for Lone Peak with a hat track and one assist. Kate Fuller and Kate Kennedy added goals as well.

“First game always has some extra nerves and jitters and it was good to actually see our offense creating some good chances and finishing them as well, especially after losing so many senior forwards from last season. It’s always positive to get a win that first game,” said Lone Peak coach Shantel Jolley.

Ridgeline 2, Skyline 2 (Ridgeline wins in PKs 3-1)

Skyline didn’t lose a single game last season, going a perfect 20-0. Ridgeline made sure the streak stopped at 20.
