Girls U17 Net Two Wins at Jefferson Cup

RICHMOND, VA - The Shattuck-St. Mary’s Girls U17 soccer team traveled to Richmond, Virginia this past weekend to participate in the Jefferson Cup, one of the top youth soccer tournaments in the country.

After falling 2-0 to Penn Fusion in their first game on Friday, SSM returned to the turf with momentum. On Saturday, SSM started slow, spotting the Richmond Strikers an early lead. Goals by Sydney Haustein ‘19 and Maddie Grate brought the Sabres up to speed, but a goal by Richmond’s own gave SSM the 3-2 victory.

Girls U17 finished the tournament on Sunday with another hard-fought victory, storming back to beat Ohio Elite 3-2.
