The Emery Lady Spartans used a quick start and a strong finish to snap a four-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Grand Red Devils Tuesday afternoon in Moab.
Two first half goals gave Emery a comfortable 2-0 lead heading into the break. Continuing to apply pressure offensively, the Lady Spartans found the back of the net two more times in the second half to earn the season series sweep over Grand and move to 2-3 in region play.
Purity Mason led the Lady Spartans as she scored two goals, running her total to team-best five on the season. Madi Bunnell and Beka Barnett both contributed one goal as Emery earned its first road win in 2022.
Senior goalkeeper Calypso Mason played a complete game for Emery, allowing just one goal. In four wins this season Emery has outscored its opponents 13-1.
The Lady Spartans are now ranked No. 15 in the latest UHSAA RPI following the results from Tuesday’s games in the 3A classification. All three of the team’s final regular season games will come against teams ranked inside the top ten, giving Emery an opportunity to climb the rankings.
Up next will be a road contest with No. 8 Richfield on Thursday. The two teams met for the first time back on Sept. 6 as Richfield pulled away for a 4-2 win.
