It wasn’t often that Hart goalkeeper Kayce Perkins was called upon to make a play, but when she was, the junior proved to be more than up to the challenge.

Thanks to multiple acrobatic saves by Perkins and goals by junior Katie Trevino and seniors Megan Indermill and Kayla Kret, the Indians beat Burroughs of Burbank 3-0 on Thursday at Hart High.

The Indians (2-0) controlled possession and kept the ball within goal-scoring distance for much of the game, earning their second straight shutout.

After the game, Hart head coach Mike Gomez praised the play of Indermill and Kret, both of whom scored off corner kicks.

“It is something we’ve been working on for the last three or four weeks,” Gomez said. “I think we are going to be successful on set pieces — corner kicks and free kicks.”

Indermill’s goal came in the 47th minute when she headed home the corner from Brittany Ballew to make the score 2-0.

Then in the 67th minute, Indermill served up Kret’s goal to conclude the scoring.

Indermill also scored off a corner kick in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Arcadia.

Facing Burroughs (0-2), a young team that was missing nine of its 22 players, including four of it’s starters, it was Trevino that opened up the scoring midway through the first half off the assist from sophomore Kelsey Steck.

Last season, Trevino finished the regular season as the Foothill League’s leading goal scorer, netting 19.

Gomez also credited Perkins for preserving the win.

In the second half, Burroughs attempted long shots in transition in hopes of catching the junior off her line.

The keeper, who finished with three saves, demonstrated great range to get back to the ball and punch it away from danger.

Hart moved the ball well and exuded good chemistry with one-touch passes, but was missing the creative touch that lifted the team
over Arcadia, Gomez said.

“We just lacked the intensity I think,” he said. “First half and second half, even though we ended up scoring, we weren’t creative enough to put more goals in, which we should have been capable of doing today.”

On numerous occasions, Burroughs goalkeeper Rica Chuidian was able to get her fingertips on the ball to nudge it inches over the crossbar.

“I think this team has talent,” said Burroughs head coach Louie Binda. “I mean, we didn’t look as good as I would have liked, but we’re not that deep where I can lose four starters and play competitively against a team as good as Hart or Canyon or Notre Dame.”
