ST. GEORGE — The Crimson Cliffs girls soccer team is off to a promising start in Region 10, with the Mustangs defeating Snow Canyon 3-2 on the road Thursday night to improve their record to 6-2 overall, 3-0 in region play.
Snow Canyon got on the board first, as Sydney Nicholls scored in the opening minutes, assisted by Millie Warner.
Crimson Cliffs senior Jantzyn Losee then netted a goal for the Mustangs, tying the score 1-1. That was followed by a goal by teammate Allie Blanchard that put Crimson Cliffs up 2-1 just before halftime.
Early in the second half, the Mustangs scored their third goal, as Kate Young dribbled up the left side, then kicked it to Losee, who knocked it in past the goalkeeper, giving the Mustangs a 3-1 lead.
