DENVER — Jordan Nytes got a special gift on her 18th birthday -- her first career goal.
The Grandview goalkeeper was given the opportunity to take her team's penalty kick on Tuesday at Mullen, and she sent the ball into the bottom-left corner of the opposing net to score.
The goal was the last of the Wolves' scoring that led to their 3-0 road win over the Mustangs.
"It was so exciting. I've had an assist before, but never a goal," Nytes, a senior, said after the game. "It's amazing. It's my last year here so it's something I'll remember for sure."
Grandview, the No. 4 team in this week's CHSAA rankings, battled through a scoreless first half with Mullen.
The Wolves finally broke through in the 56th minute when Zoe Park deflected in a free kick. They followed that up with another in the 64th minute on a long-range goal from Madalyn Hopkins. Nytes then scored in the 72nd minute.
Grandview improves to 4-1-1 overall on the season, while Mullen falls to 3-3.
