The Shattuck-St. Mary’s U16 girls soccer team had a busy start to the New Year, completing their whirlwind two weeks with 4 wins and a loss in 5 games.
Saturday’s opponent made the trek all the way from Thunder Bay, Ontario in Canada for the game, and brought with them a mixed group of U16 and U17 players. To level the playing field, the Shattuck U16s called in a small handful of U18 players to fill in as subs and provide additional depth. The result was another impressive one for Shattuck with four goals scored by three different players. A first half tap-in from Beuning was added to in the second half by three more goals. In the 54th minute, bruising center back Patricia Wentworth rose highest to nod home Reznik’s corner kick. In the final 10 minutes of the game, junior Alaysia Lane finished off two of her own in spectacular fashion. First, she one-timed a driven ball from LeFlore back the other way and past a diving Thunder Bay GK. To round out her night, the Rutgers commit weaved her way in and out of three would-be defenders and slid the ball past the keeper. Despite the offensive outpouring, credit too also had to be given to Wentworth, Carissa Seying, Alex Skinner, Susan Kehl, Hunter Zamzow, and Morgan Friday, as the collection of defenders didn’t allow a shot on goal the entire game.
