East Union’s girls soccer team showed no ill effects from its season-opening loss, crushing visiting Franklin of Stockton on Monday 6-1 at Dino Cunial Field.
The Lancers (1-1) could not overcome a listless start last Friday in a 4-2 loss at Lincoln.
“It was good to bounce back,” East Union coach Carlos Gaspar said. “They played four games in the past week (including two scrimmages) and it’s nice to go into a break with a win.”
Outside midfielder Hailey Sims helped lead the way, starting with her goal early in the first half. She later sent a cross for Sonia Ruiz’s score that made it 3-1 at halftime, and assisted Celeste Guerrero in the second half.
Taylor McMahon struck twice in the second half, while Cynthia Romero added a headed goal on Guerrero’s corner kick cross.
