North Putnam hammers Owen Valley 9-0

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

ROACHDALE -- The North Putnam girls' soccer team rocked Owen Valley Tuesday night, blasting the Patriots 9-0.

The Cougars got a huge game from freshman Maggie Pinney and senior Jessica Roseman. Pinney scored four goals on the night with Roseman adding three of her own. Elsiana Crosby and Taylor Badten had a goal each.

Cougar head coach Willie Gaskins had his team attacking from the beginning and the rewards of that were obvious.

"We played a very good game," Gaskins said. "In the first half I wanted them to keep the pressure up and keep the pace high because I never know what a team is going to be like. Then we came out really strong."

Gaskins also noted that the scoring was balanced throughout the contest. In the second half, he had his squad pull back a little and work on fundamentals such as dribbling and passing.

The Cougars' coach also commented on the improvement he's seen in his squad over the course of their three games. Another benefit for the big scoring night was that the Cougars were able to pull people off the bench and get some quality minutes.

"I got our bench players in for quite a bit of playing time," Gaskins said. "Everybody played excellent and they all showed a lot of improvement over the last few game.

"It was a pretty good game overall and it was a nice night too. It was definitely a nice night," Gaskins concluded.

The Cougars will host Southmont at 5 p.m. Thursday.
