The North Dallas had very little trouble scoring as 10 players scored en route to a 23-0 victory over Carter in a District 11-4A game Thursday at Pleasant Grove Stadium. Even North Dallas goalkeeper Genesis Velez had two goals in the win.
Eleven girls scored for the Lady Bulldogs. Isis Balderas led the way with six goals, followed by Sara Villa (4), Lucia Arellano (2), Abigail Galvan (2) Marlene Martinez (2), Genesis Velez (2), and Blanca Charcas, Iliana Morfin, Flavia Santamaria, Lisandra Martinez, and Selena Villatora each had one goal.
“It felt really good,” Genesis said, who scored both goals in the second half. “I haven’t been playing on the field very much, but getting out there and scoring two goals was amazing.”
Genesis said she wasn’t expecting to score on her first goal.
“I was planning to cross it [toward the middle] but it curved and went in. And it was a pretty good goal,” she said.
On the second goal, “The goalkeeper passed it to me, I took on a defender and I shot it in,” said Genesis, a senior.
Similar to the other district games, North Dallas Coach Stephanie Stein substituted all the players throughout the game.
The Lady Bulldogs return to action against Hillcrest at 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Franklin Field. The boys team is scheduled to play at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Franklin Field.
