The Northland Prep Spartans girls soccer team registered another dominant win to start the season, this time beating Show Low 9-0 on the road Tuesday.

The 2A Conference Spartans won their sixth straight game, when accounting for games outside the power-point schedule, to start the 2019 season.

Scoring started in the second minute with a great ball served from goalkeeper Payten Schmidt to forward Ellie Karren. Later in the match, Mia Blair played a ball across to her sister, Jordan Blair, who hit a shot in the upper corner.

Karren and Mia Blair continued to lead the attack for the Spartans as they  combined for six goals Tuesday, with two more coming off the leg of Sydney Sventek. The Spartans defense gave up only three shots, one of which led to a strong save by Schmidt in the net.

"(It was) one of the most complete games start to finish we’ve ever had at NPA,” Spartans co-head coach Michael Blair said.

Next up, the Spartans (2-0) host Round Valley on Thursday at 4 p.m. at Sinagua Middle School.


Northland Prep got its first win of the season and first under new head coach Erik Carrillo with a 3-2 overtime victory on the road over the Page Sand Devils.

The Spartans (1-2) will host Payson on Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Sinagua Middle School.
