Kirsten Bauman's Late Goal Lifts SP Girls Soccer To Narrow Victory

In what was an evenly-matched nonleague battle between the San Pedro and Beverly Hills High girls soccer teams, all that was left was a little drama, and all that was missing for 78 minutes was a goal.

The Pirates would look to sophomore defender Kirsten Bauman to provide it.

After a foul led to a free kick, Bauman would blast a perfect shot from 20 yards away in the top-center of the net for the only goal that mattered, and San Pedro was able to edge the Normans, 1-0 in a highly competitive battle where neither team was dominant.

Both teams had ten shots on goal each, but Bauman's goal was all the Pirates (3-3-1 overall) would need.

The wild card in this game was San Pedro freshman goalie Taylor Miller.

Whenever the Normans (4-4-1) had an opportunity at scoring, including off of two free kicks and a corner kick, Miller used her extensive long arms to lay down the law and deny them. Miller was also tough on shots from the ground, scooping up other stray shots that didn't come close, and even making a diving save on a breakaway chance in the first half.

San Pedro had several chances as well.

In the first half, freshman midfielder Gabriella Ma, senior forwards Lauren Mayeda and Joanna Perone all had shots at point blank range, but misfired. Then in the second half, a great move by Mayeda, changing speed and direction on a brilliant juke that eluded two Beverly Hills defenders, led to an easy shot for Perone, who kicked the ball too hard at about three inches at the left-side of the net.

Bauman's corner kick in the 60th minute led to a great chance for freshman forward Heather Carlton, who was slightly off on another point-blank attempt.

Yet when one of Beverly Hills' players slightly pushed Mayeda from behind, it led to Bauman's moment.

San Pedro will be off for two weeks and will kickoff the new year with two Pirate Cup pool play games against Bishop Amat of La Puente and Granada Hills on Friday, January 4, 2013, both at San Pedro High.
