The Bret Harte Bullfrogs girls’ soccer team had no trouble in the rain Tuesday night and defeated the Argonaut Mustangs 3-0 in the Mother Lode League opener for both teams at Dorroh Field in Angels Camp.

Bret Harte head coach Scott Fairman had one message to his team during the harsh conditions — “Welcome to winter soccer.”

The Bullfrogs got two goals from Jenna Rapetti and one from Jenna Fairman. Assists came from Fiona Swift and freshman Chloe Crawford.

“The back line stopped the waves of attacks with great defensive play from Malia Day, Alyssa Schaffer and Brenna Landis,” Fairman said.

Bret Harte goalkeeper Sierra Stephens posted a shutout and made three saves.

The Bullfrogs (6-1, 1-0 MLL) take on the 2016 Mother Lode League champion Amador Buffaloes today in Amador.

JV — The junior varsity Bullfrogs lost 2-1. Sammy Gish scored Bret Harte’s goal.
