The Avonworth Middle School Girls Soccer went to Keystone Oaks and showed the crowd why they are one of the better teams in the WPIAL with a very strong 4-0 win.
The scoring started slowly for the Lady Lopes but not the procession of play. During the first 1/2 the Lopes kept the ball in the Golden Eagles side of the pitch virtually the whole 1/2 but could only find net once at the 5MIN mark by a terrific individual effort by Ravenna Kelley. The Lopes threatened to whole 1/2 with shot after shot but none were true.
The second 1/2 was much better for the Lady Lopes. At the 35MIN mark Allison Haley received a layoff pass from Emma Luther in the 18 yard box and hammered it home. LOPES 2 – GOLDEN EAGLES 0. The goal would not have been possible without the terrific effort by Revenna Kelley to take the ball deep into the Golden Eagle right corner and getting a deadly cross that found Luther’s foot. The next goal came just 5MINS later when Tess Pappas found Revenna Kelley, Revenna deposited the ball into the Golden Eagle net. LOPES 3 – GOLDEN EAGLES 0 To cap it off Mina Syam made a great individual effort from a cross into the box that showed she was not going to be denied a goal. She made at least 3 strikes on the ball with the last one tickling the twine. LOPES 4 – GOLDEN EAGLES 0
The Lopes Defense was stout. Lead by Sophia Culley, Gianna Babusci, Payton Sciere, Maryn Ronk, Elise Nardozzi, and Kayleaigh Kelleher.
