Giulia Ferrando made one save on four shots in goal for the ‘Stangs, while Zoe Hutchins made 17 saves on 29 shots in net for the Bulldogs.

“We struggled a bit at times during preseason trying to sort out combinations and work through different formations, but we came out fast and hard in the first five minutes and blitzed them for three goals,” said Mount View coach David Page. “We controlled the ball well, pressured them all over the field and had plenty of opportunities but just couldn’t finish. The defense was amazing all game and Giulia came off her line to make several nice plays and limited them to just a couple of quality shots. We have plenty to work on but I’m really pleased with the overall performance today.”

Belfast 10, Nokomis 2
