The Spartans crushed Bishop Blanchet in girls soccer 7-1 Friday at Bainbridge High Stadium.

Natalie Vukic and Riley Gregoire paced Bainbridge with two goals each, while fellow Spartan Rosie Kerstetter added a goal and finished with three assists.

Bainbridge led 4-0 at the half, and pushed ahead 6-0 before Bishop Blanchet found its first and only goal.

Gregoire started the scorefest with a goal in the second minute after Kerstetter's shot on goal was stopped by the Braves' goalkeeper, who lost control of the save and Kerstetter punched it past to a waiting Gregoire, who drilled it into the undefended goal.

Gregoire scored again near the end of the half for the Spartans' second goal (30th minute, assist from Kerstetter).

Vukic followed with another quick score for the Spartans (32nd minute, assist from Sarah Berschinski), and Celia Story closed out the scoring in the half (39th minute, from Kerstetter).

Vukic added her second goal at the 50th minute with an assist from Kristen Bond.

Kerstetter followed with the Spartans' sixth goal (53rd minute), and the Braves got on the board in the 72nd minute with a score by Lauren Van Tassell.

Ali Snare iced the score at 7-1 with a goal in the 76th minute for Bainbridge.

The Spartans next face Eastside Catholic at home on Tuesday, Sept. 25. The varsity match begins at 6:45 p.m.
