Much like the first meeting of the teams earlier this season, No. 2 seed Juan Diego scored early and never let up, beating No. 3 seed Cedar City 4-0 in the first round of the Class 3A girls soccer state tournament on Wednesday.
Juan Diego senior AnnaMarie Digeronio converted from the penalty spot for an early 1-0 lead. Juan Diego doubled its lead in the 10th minute, when sophomore Daviana Vaka got free in front of the goal and headed a loose ball home.
The fast start by Juan Diego allowed for the defense to relax, while the offense continued to apply the pressure on Cedar City.
