After dropping its season opener Paire vented its ire on Matansa, posting an emphatic 9-1 win in Week 2 of the Women's M-League last Tuesday at the Oleai Sports Complex Field.
Youth player Kayleen Salle anchored Paire's demolition of Matansa, scoring four goals and helping her team bounce back from a loss at the hands of Shirley's FC, 0-2, during the season's opening week. Veteran strikers Natalie Hill and Corina Suda chipped in two goals, while Phalai Frink contributed one. Maile Aldrich was the lone player to score for Matansa, which dropped to a 0-0-2 win-draw-loss card, as it also fell to Independents FC in the league's opening week, 0-3.
Salle opened the scoring for Paire with her goals in the sixth minute, while Aldrich tied the match nine minutes later. Suda then got her first goal in the 24th, while Salle struck two in a row (31st and 34th minute) to give Paire a commanding 5-1 halftime lead.
Suda lit up Paire's scoreboard first in the second half with her goal in the 68th, while Frink made it a 7-1 advantage in the 69th, and Hill closed out the game for her team with her back-to-back goals (71st and 73rd).
Shirley's 5, Tan Holdings 0
Shirley's made it two in a row after shutting out Tan Holdings FC (0-1-1) in the first game last Saturday night, also at the Oleai pitch.
Shirley's drew goals from five different players with Marielle Gariguez starting things out for the team in the sixth minute. Shirley's went on to take a 2-0 halftime advantage after Melody Johnson found the back of the net in the 21st.
Gariguez was also the first one to score in the second half with her goal in the 58th, while Negahr Rastguiy and Jeralyn Castillo completed Shirley's domination of Tan Holdings after tallying one goal apiece in the 75th and 79th minute, respectively.
MP United 2, Independents 1
In the other match last Saturday, MP United broke into the win column after beating Independents (1-0-1).
MP United, which came off a scoreless draw against Tan Holdings in Week 1, boosted its chances for a win in Week 2 after scoring early off Amy Taylor's goal in the fifth. Kayla Ito also got a goal in the 29th for MP United's 2-0 edge at the break.
MP United then managed to hung on to the lead and secure the win after Independents FC only earned one goal, courtesy of Terra Allen (68th minute).
