Girls Development (JV) Soccer Team First Victory

Coach Rodney Jones
The "Fighting Saints" of the Girls JV Soccer team registered the first winning result on the pitch at Oakcrest School in a convincing 5-1 victory. 
In their first match since the beginning of the CoVID-19 Pandemic the Girls JV side stepped on the pitch and acquitted themselves as only a Saint could.  The first goal was scored by Elliot Desautels on an amazing assist in traffic from Ellery Johnson.  The second finish was put away by Lydia Penkiunas from 25-yards out off an amazing switch from Hayley Lookadoo.  The third goal came on a 50-yard chip-shot from near mid-field by Ellery Johns (SHOT OF THE MATCH) off a negative pass back from Hayley Lookadoo.  The fourth came off of a firm strike inside the penalty area by our attacking mid-fielder Hayley Lookadoo off of a sneak pass from Mariel Irish.  And, finally Morgan Nielsen capped off the afternoon with a pitch-scaring strike off an amazing ball from the left flank from Lydia Penkiunas.

I want to give a special shout to the Centerback pairing of Ellery Johnson and Claire Joiner who were flanked by a tandem of fierce and aggressive wing-backs that were a fortress that buttressed solid goalkeeping from Catie Poersch and Elliot Desautels.  Game-balls go to Haleyna Clark and Grace Hunsicker for the solid play off the bench.
