NC Soccer: Bulldogs dominate in home soccer opener

Corsicana — The Navarro Bulldogs reminded conference foe Northeast on Tuesday night what it's like to play against the best teams the conference has to offer.

The Bulldogs scored three goals in less than eight minutes to open the match, and had a relatively easy time on the way to a 7-0 victory in their home opener.

The No. 13-ranked Bulldogs (2-1) opened up the conference schedule by scoring on the attack and on set pieces.

Navarro had 18 shots on goal. Bulldogs goaltender Kenia Medina didn't face a single shot on goal in 90 minutes.

It was a pretty good effort for a Navarro team with 24 freshmen and four sophomores.

"With this many young players, we're not disappointed with the result," assistant coach Aric Bonner said. "We still have a lot to learn."

JoAnna Nigro scored Navarro's first two goals, striking 61 seconds into the match on an assist from Melina Prado, then again at the 42:20 mark of the first half on an assist from Chelsea Blacklock.

Caroline Spurrier make it 3-0 with 37:54 left in the first half on an assist from German midfielder Judith Bast, who also scored on an assist from Spurrier with 12:10 left.

Bast made it 5-0 with 5:15 left in the first half, hooking in a beautiful strike on a direct kick from just outside of the box.

Blacklock got into the scoring act with 36:22 left in the match on an assist from Bast.

And Tiffany Robinson completed the scoring on an assist from Nigro with 21:25 left in the match.
