The Mercer Island girls soccer team bounced back from their first league loss last week to a 3-0 win over Juanita on Tuesday, Oct. 16.
The Islanders, now 11-1-1 overall this season and 9-1-1 in KingCo, battled with Juanita throughout the first half, as both teams fought to gain control of the game.
Early in the second half, the Islanders appeared to be knocking at the door, holding the ball on the Rebels half of the field, and finally in the 63rd minute, the Islanders kicked the door open.
Jamie Mounger connected a header to the back of the net off a corner from teammate Marissa Hammerstrom in the 63rd minute. Five minutes later Kianna Chang scored on a rebound, after Michele Day shot the ball. Day scored a goal of her own, this time assisted by Chang, in the 70th minute.
The Islanders will travel to play Liberty on Thursday, Oct. 18 in a 7:30 p.m. game. The team will return home to play Mount Si on Tuesday, Oct. 23 in the last home game of the regular season before traveling to Bellevue on Oct. 25.
Juanita is scheduled to travel to Sammamish on Oct. 18 for a 7:30 p.m. game.
