PROVO — Provo's 4-0 win over American Fork in girls' soccer came with a heavy price for the Bulldogs. In the first half, Provo lost starter Stephanie Eyre to an injury when she collided head-first with an American Fork player. In the second half, Provo forward Jana Van Wagoner was given a red card.
Both players will miss Thursday's game with cross-town rival Timpview.
"It was a good win but maybe the price was a little to high," Provo coach Cesar Cardoso said. "Maybe this game cost us to much."
Despite the setbacks, Provo still dominated the game offensively and held American Fork without a goal for its seventh straight game.
While the Cavemen are struggling just to score a goal, Provo's Jana Davis is not, as she scored two goals and one assist to lead Provo to the win.
"She could have had about three more," Cardoso said.
It took Provo 30 minutes to get on the scoreboard, but once they did they scored quick.
In the 31st minute Davis scored her first goal, heading in a corner kick from Cami Hofheins.
"I stepped back and I just took off right in the middle," Davis said on her goal. "I got the girls behind me and I just jumped as high as I could and headed it in."
After Davis' goal, Provo scored two more goals in the final nine minutes of the first half to lead 3-0 at halftime.
Becca Griffith put the Bulldogs on top 2-0 in the 36th minute when a ball knocked off her foot and into the goal on a cross pass from Van Wagoner. In the final seconds of the first half Davis scored her second goal of the game on a penalty kick.
"We were able to pass the ball and create lots of opportunities for ourselves," Cardoso said. "I was really pleased with the ability we had to create more chances."
In the 78th minute Davis crossed a pass to Marisa Mix for the games final goal.
