Miranda Gonzalez scored the winning goal with 10 minutes left as Maria Carrillo edged visiting Montgomery 3-2 in the North Bay League opener for both teams.

Amy Glaser started the game-winning sequence with a corner kick that connected with Gonzalez in front of the Montgomery goal. Gonzalez collected the ball and drove it to the back of the net.

Montgomery led 2-1 at halftime in the match between two unbeaten teams.

The Vikings controlled the pace of the game in the first half and got goals from Isabella Beal and Taylor Ziemer.

“The pace was frantic in the first half,” Carrillo coach Debra LaPrath said. “They had us on our heels.

“At halftime, we talked about controlling the ball and playing at our pace. The girls came out a different team in the second half.”

Brittany Lore got the Pumas off to a quick start with a goal in the opening minute. However, Montgomery took control of the game flow right after that.

Maddy Gonzalez’s goal got Carrillo even.

“It was a good battle,” Montgomery coach Pat McDonald said.

“We fought back after Carrillo scored in the first minute. I’m proud of my girls.”

The Pumas, who are ranked in the top 10 nationally, improved to 5-0-1. Montgomery’s record is 5-1.
