GILROY—The Mustangs field hockey team notched its first win of the year and it did it in grand fashion.
Gilroy blanked Monterey 8-0 Tuesday at Christopher High behind a breakout performance from Carli Coyler. The junior recorded a hat trick against the Toreadors to lead her team to victory.
Gilroy also saw breakout performances from two of its rookies. First-year players Corrine Lombardo scored two goals for the Mustangs, while Cami Rogers scored one. Maddy Cox and Cathy Carbajal also had a goal apiece and Carbajal earned Player of the Game honors for her standout play, head coach Adam Gemar said.
