Two great games this week to end the season:

Monday, an away game going 100 minutes playing Upper Moreland’s Senior Night - Center back, Haley Reed and Middle, Lieke Black had a stellar game, but the take-a-way was the pace the game was played and the mental toughness our players showed from whistle to whistle — Awesome TEAM effort.

And tonight, our Senior night under the lights, another awesome game (and warmer too). Alexis Smith, fitting that she is one of our three seniors, had two goals, her second the game winner with 3 minutes left to play. The TEAM again battled whistle to whistle for the whole of 80 minutes. Lieke Black set the pace early with Carly Amato, Anna Schools, Brooke Berry, and Grace Mullen all stepping up in the second half. Sophia Chiodo Ortiz, Sam Intrieri, and Natalie Gruenke, off the bench, gave the TEAM an extra shot of energy each time they stepped onto the pitch. And Goal Keep, Quinn Klessel played a very impressive game showing great form inside the goal mouth. It was an awesome win to end the season as we celebrated our veteran seniors and thanked them for their unyielding service to our Program; Captains #6 ANNA WILDE, #13 ALEXIS SMITH and #11 VICTORIA SELVERIAN.

A character building season -- Our Girls Soccer TEAM has battled through a tough schedule. They never strayed from the high road, always showed great character, perseverance, and much strength as they forged lasting friendships and built a foundation to spring forward from next season and the seasons to come.

Well done Ladies!
