SALINA—The Manti girl’s soccer team earned another dominant win last Thursday Sept. 22 when they shut out the North Sevier Wolves, 6-0.

Goalie Gentry Young earned the easy shut-out while never having to touch the ball the entire game.

Although the game was close at the half with Manti ahead 1-0, the Templars controlled the second half, getting five goals for the win. Jamie Bawden had a three-goal hat trick. Amy Lund, Lexie Alder and Morganne Stevens also found the net for Manti.

Midway through the regular season the Templars are 5-0 in region competition, but are not ranked in the top five in the state.

Looking at the remainder of the regular season, the biggest challenge for the Templars may be keeping their focus and preparing for tournament play.
