MAXWELL - The Collins-Maxwell-Baxter girls’ soccer team kept a Nevada team rated No. 3 in Class 1A at bay for 20 minutes, but the Raiders could only withstand the potent Cub attack for so long in a 10-0 loss Monday in Maxwell.
CMB held Nevada to one goal over the first 20 minutes of play. But then the Cubs got hot, scoring seven goals over the next 19 minutes.
Nevada added two more goals over the first five minutes and 16 seconds of the second half to end the game early on account of the 10-goal mercy rule.
CMB assistant coach Adam Meseke said he thought his team gave a good effort going up against the traditional powerhouse. The Raiders limited Nevada to just one goal over the first 20 minutes before the floodgates opened.
“Nevada is a great team and we knew it’d be a tough game,” Meseke said. “We did everything we possibly could. We kept them on their toes — they had to win. It took them awhile, but they earned it.”
Kaylee Kruschwitz scored three goals, Abby Stephenson had two goals and four assists and Skye Borton chipped in two goals for Nevada in the victory.
The loss put CMB at 3-6. Nevada improved to 8-3.
