Bishop Manogue slid past Spanish Springs on their own turf Tuesday night, 2-1, in a High Desert League girls soccer match.
Manogue’s Marin Zaccheo scored two goals within minutes of each other at the end of regulation to turn a one-goal deficit into a one-goal lead.
“The first 60 minutes were tough, but the last 20 went great,” Manogue coach Shelly Avansino said. “The first half was rough because we resorted to a different (playing) style—defense—when we are used to being in possession.”
The Cougars’ Makayla Long scored the first goal of the match in the 45th minute. It was Spanish Springs’ only goal of the night despite numerous shots on goal.
“We did well, but we let them (the Miners) get away,” Spanish Springs coach Matt Faker said. “We could’ve scored at least three goals in the first half and one more in the second. We have to work on finishing on opportunities for next week.”
Spanish Springs (1-1-0, 1-1-0) hosts Carson Saturday at 11 a.m.

The first coming 20 minutes in and the second coming 10 minutes after the half.
With the loss, the Raiders dropped to 0-2-0, 0-2-0. They host Damonte Ranch Saturday at 11 a.m.
