COUNCIL BLUFFS — Waterloo opened its 2019 girls’ soccer season with a 3-1 victory over 15th-ranked Sioux City East Friday night at the Council Bluffs Thomas Jefferson Classic.
Faith Trelka gave Waterloo an early lead with a blast from the top of the penalty area in the fifth minute. Three minutes later, it was 2-0 when Trelka dribbled toward the goal following a corner kick and put a pass across the face of the goal that Kaitlyn Meyer tapped in.
Trelka made it 3-0 in the second half with a 40-yard solo run before Sioux City East finally broke through with 10 minutes remaining.
COLUMBUS 4, CEDAR VALLEY CHRISTIAN 0: Eighth-ranked Waterloo Columbus took the opening kickoff in for a goal and never looked back as the Sailors blanked Cedar Valley Christian.
Bella Fain took the pass from that opening kick and found Erica Smith with a cross that Smith buried for a 1-0 lead. Jenna Schott’s first varsity goal off the first of Katelyn Blair’s two assists made it 2-0 late in the first half.
Schott scored her second goal and assisted a score by Maddie Burr in the second half.
