Great Bend soccer shuts out Junction City in regular season finale
spt th gbhssoccerjc1

Araceli Delgadillo scored two goals late in the second half to help the Great Bend girls soccer team end the regular season on a positive note in a 6-0 victory over visiting Junction City Thursday.

“This was such a great way to end a challenging regular season,” said coach Gus Prieto. “The girls came out focused and determined and hopefully that determination will help us at next week’s regional.”

A pass from Jessica Loera at the 1:18 minute, first half, set up a potential goal for Monica Hernandez but a collision with an opposing player resulted in a season-ending broken ankle for the Panther junior. The loose ball was recovered quickly by sophomore Keely Ireland who punched it in for the score to give the home team a 1-0 lead. The Panthers converted their second goal late in the half as Loera nailed a penalty kick giving Great Bend a 2-0 advantage heading to intermission.

The Panthers came out swinging early in the second period as Griffith passed to Ireland for a converted long kick. Another long range shot by Melanie Garcia just three minutes later put Great Bend up 4-0.

Delgadillo’s first goal came around the 15:00 mark as she dribbled around two defenders and scored from 20 yards away. She then nailed the final shot of the afternoon on a pass by Kaily Griffith with just under 10 minutes remaining as the Panthers went ahead to post the 6-0 win.

Great Bend wraps up regular season play at 4-11-1 and will face host Maize South in regional competition either Monday or Tuesday with a start time to be determined.
