After both teams battled through a scoreless first half, visiting Analy scored twice to defeat Petaluma, 2-0, and remain unbeaten in the Sonoma County League.

Jillian Vanriper scored on a header after a cross from Sammi Zepponi to get the Tigers on the board, and then Brooklyn Varnadore found the back of the net after coraling Amanda Nebzuk’s free kick.

Both goals came in the final 15 minutes.

“We played phenomenal in the second half,” Analy coach Brittney Briones said. “We moved the ball around the field and did a lot of talking.

“I though Zepponi, Nebzuk, (Alison) Boyer and (Bella) Niedamir played the games of their lives.”

The Tigers are 5-0 in SCL play and 10-1 overall.

Petaluma suffered its first league defeat and is 3-1-1 and 4-2-2 overall.

Trojans coach Chris Daly praised his defense.

“They played very well,” he said. “We kept Analy off the scoreboard for a long time. Analy is strong at the forward position and they’re physical.”
