Submitted by ts on
On September 3, MMHS girls soccer battled Uintah Utes on their home turf in Vernal. The Eagles won 3-2 in a close game. Jayci Peay, sophomore, scored two of the three goals from free kicks; both shots were perfectly placed in the side nets, just out of reach of the keeper. The Eagles were ahead 2-0 at the end of the first half, but the Utes came out hard and scored two goals. The game winning goal was scored by Baylee Nielson, a sophomore, by slipping the ball past the goalie in a scramble. The game was hard fought.
