Sophia Ordonez scored a well placed second half goal chipping the ball over the goalkeeper’s head to lead the Spirit to the win. The goal broke a scoreless tie in a game that was hard fought and end to end. Madison Kelly played outstanding as the Spirit goalkeeper, keeping a clean-sheet and preserving the victory with a diving save with just moments left in the game. Defenders Sarah Case, Alaina Casazza, Makayla Modin and LaLa Zabat were stellar as they shut down the potent Solano offense. The midfielders and forwards overcame the tall grass of the Solano field to maintain an edge in possession. Colleen Turpen, Amit Dhillon and Sophia Ordonez controlled the middle while Rebecca Lehman, Jojo Chenaille and Megan Frizzie ran aggressively down the sidelines creating numerous scoring opportunities. Forwards Mia Horn, Haylee Pedro, and captain Haley St. George provided great pressure on the Striker defense which contributed immensely to the Spirit win.
