The Grand County High School girls soccer team won its first game of the season, a 3-0 shutout victory over American Leadership Academy at Moab on Thursday, Sept. 12.

“Many people underestimated us and were saying we were going to lose, but we proved them wrong,” said GCHS senior Shaylee Dalton, who scored Grand’s first two goals of the game.

GCHS sophomore Skyla Sheldon added the third goal for the Lady Devils. Junior Abbie Camps picked up the shutout as Grand’s goalkeeper.

The Lady Devils’ originally were scheduled to play a contest against Gunnison on Sept. 10, but that game was postponed because of heavy rain and has not yet been rescheduled.

This week, the Lady Devils were scheduled to play Manti at Moab on Tuesday, Sept. 17 and South Summit at Kamas on Thursday, Sept. 19.
