The Christopher High girls soccer team rebounded from its first Monterey Bay League loss last Thursday, shutting out Pajaro Valley 2-0 in MBL action on Tuesday in Gilroy.
After a scoreless first half, the Cougars used two second half goals from Emma Morley and Cailin McCarry as the difference. Morley and McCarry each have four goals on the season.
“It was a tough game – a little physical,” said head coach Janae Pimentel, whose Cougars move to 5-1 in league. “The first half we couldn’t put passes together. We played better in the second.”
CHS hosts Seaside at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday.
