Reagan closed out their girls’ soccer regular season in the best possible way as they demolished MacArthur 7-0 at Blossom on Tuesday afternoon.
Impressively all seven goals in the match came from different players, with no player scoring multiple goals. That augers well for the Rattlers heading in to the postseason play with a deep pool of players capable of scoring goals. Junior midfielder Sarah Puga was involved in three goals, providing two assists and scoring one herself.
It took just two minutes for the Rattlers to open the scoring, in a sign of what was about to happen for MacArthur. Sophomore midfielder Rachel Hilliard was able to get on the end of a chance and bury it getting Reagan off to a flying start.
After that goal MacArthur’s defense settles, at least a little but in the eighth minute they were able to double their lead. This time it came through senior forward Taylor Olson who was able to continue her good season, using her speed to get on the end of it and make it 2-0.
11 minutes later and the onslaught continued as the Rattlers continued attacking with senior forward Lauren Anderson scoring another goal for Reagan. It took just five minutes before Reagan made it four as Angela Baltimore was able to score her goal.
That was the middle of an onslaught as just four minutes later Reagan had another goal as senior forward Jala Tousant was able to bury her chance. Just two minutes later they made it 6-0 as a corner found sophomore defender Eden Jones who used her height to bury the chance.
With a phenomenal six goal lead at half-time the second half saw less intensity as Reagan let off the gas a little but still controlled proceedings. Late in the match Reagan made it seven as the corner was swung in by Puga, who managed to score directly from the corner wrapping up the 7-0 win.
