Woodcreek strikes against Granite Bay in soccer
Lauren Hayano scored in the first half and Kristin Womack scored late as Woodcreek High School defeated Granite Bay 2-0 in a Sierra Foothill League soccer match Friday night at Woodcreek.
The victory kept the Timberwolves (9-2-5 overall, 3-1-3 SFL) on the heels of league-leading Del Oro (7-0-4, 4-0-3). Woodcreek was scheduled to play Rocklin on Tuesday, and Del Oro visits Granite Bay (6-4-2, 3-3-1) today.
It was the seventh goal of the season for Hayano and the third for Womack. Meanwhile, the Timberwolves registered their ninth shutout, and it was the second for freshman Samantha Clark.
Coach Mark Bowman said Woodcreek made the correct runs at the right times.
“We stuck to our game plan, which opened room for our strikers,” he said. “We found some holes, and we jumped in them and scored off them.”
Roseville 4, Rocklin 0 — Chanisse Hendrix and Amanda Susbilla had a goal and an assist apiece for the Tigers (14-2-2, 3-2-2) in their win over the Thunder (10-4-3, 1-2-3).
Woodcreek 7, Orangevale 6 — The host Timberwolves (6-3) scored three goals in the final three minutes to rally past the Ram on Saturday night for their third win in a row.

Choisser, Nick Franze, Dylan Vondrachek, Nick Tiche, David Edgar and Skyler Rader led a defensive charge that shut down Orangevale.
Roseville 4, Granite Bay 2 — The Tigers (12-6-1, 5-4) scored once in the top of the sixth and three times in the seventh for a comeback victory over the host Grizzlies (7-8, 3-6).
