BELLE FOURCHE — Belle Fourche defeated Douglas-Rapid City Christian 10-0 in Tuesday’s varsity girls’ soccer home opener at the Black Hills Roundup complex, in Belle Fourche.
“We came out starting rough and not connecting well,” Broncs’ assistant coach Rebekah Ruby said. “We picked it up towards the end of the first half, and in the second half, we possessed really well, passed back to our keeper, and utilized her.”
Jayme Peterson scored twice in the first half to put Belle Fourche ahead 2-0. Laney Brill tapped in a goal with seven minutes remaining in the first half as the Broncs went up 3-0.
The margin reached 4-0 on a goal by Brill with 3 minutes 18 seconds remaining in the first half. She added another goal in the final half minute to put Belle Fourche ahead 5-0 at halftime.
Tori Brill and Peterson tallied two goals apiece in the second half as the Broncs went ahead 9-0. Emilee Farghali scored with two minutes left to put Belle Fourche ahead 10-0 and end the game.
Goalkeeper Sydney Bridge made four saves for Belle Fourche, now 1-1 on the season.
The Broncs fell 10-1 to Rapid City Central in the Aug. 17 season opener. Ruby said possession was one of the biggest improvements Belle Fourche made from that game to this one.
“We weren’t standing and watching so much. We actually stepped to the ball,” Ruby said.
Peterson finished with four goals on the day, with Laney Brill adding three goals. Ruby said they pushed themselves hard and stepped to the ball.
Belle Fourche will play at Groton this Friday and at Sioux Falls Christian on Saturday.
