Heavy rain and a slick field did not deter the Medomak Valley and Mount View girls soccer teams from playing their scheduled regular-season game Friday afternoon and the inclement weather certainly did not stop Panther Alanna Vose from doing what she does best — namely find a way to put the ball in the net.

The Panther senior scored all four goals as visiting Medomak Valley defeated Mount View 4-1 on the Mustangs’ rain-soaked field.

Vose has tallied 14 goals this season. She has had other high-scoring games in her soccer career, including several hat tricks, but it is safe to state the talented Panther has probably not scored four goals in such difficult playing conditions.

However, Friday’s sloppy, wet conditions did not stop the young student-athletes from both squads from playing hard and having fun. Vose finished with four goals, two assisted by Emily Leach and one by Maria Ennamorati. Mallory Conary also was credited with an assist.

Medomak Valley led 3-0 after the first half and 4-0 in the second before Mikell Grant scored on a direct kick for the hosts late in the game.

Medomak Valley finished with a 20-4 edge in shos and 7-1 advantage in corner kicks. Panther goalie Amanda Hendrickson-Belloguet made two saves and Mustang keeper Amanda Larrabee 12 stops.

The footing was difficult for the goalies, who often could be seen slipping and sliding to make saves. Of course, at game’s end, both keepers were soaked and covered head-to-toe with muck.

Vose, who took nine shots in the game, scored three first-half goals, at the 34:48-, 33:17- and 23:48-marks. Leach and Conary assisted on the first goal, Ennamorati on the second and the third was unassisted. Vose gave the visitors a 4-0 cushion with 23:19 left in the second half on Leach’s second assist of the contest.

Grant got the hosts on the board with a goal off a direct kick with 2:13 left.

Despite Friday’s outcome, which was Mount View’s 13th straight loss this season and made the Mustangs winless in 65 straight games covering several recent years, the hosts played hard, and well, for 80 minutes and continued to have fun. To demonstrate that, after the game, the players ran to the top of a hill near the field and dove, headfirst, down it, sliding on the wet, muddy surface.

The Mustangs are 0-64-1 in their last 65 games, with their last victory coming Sept. 14, 2007.

Medomak Valley is playoff-bound, while the Mustangs look to continue their improvement next year, as both have one regular-season game remaining this fall.

In the Maine Principals’ Association Heal Point Standings for Eastern Class B, Medomak Valley (7-5-1, 48.5714 points) is 10th and Mount View (0-13, no points) 18th (last). Hermon (11-1-1, 125.0128 points) is first. The top 12 teams qualify for the postseason.
