Becca blasts goal with 8 seconds left in first half...

The Thunderbird Spirit played a tough three game tournament in Napa over the holiday weekend.  The Spirit started the tournament with a 1-1 tie against Novato 95.  Alaina caught the Novato keeper off her line and placed one in the top netting for the Spirit’s only goal.  The Spirit had the edge in possession and shots on goal.  The second game of the tournament was against the Mustang Stampede.  Despite controlling much of the possession the Spirit had trouble scoring and was defeated 1-0.  The Spirit made a strong comeback in their final tournament game against the CV Explosion.  The defense led by Maddi, Colleen, Sarah, Makayla, Haley, and Alaina did not allow a shot on frame and the offense came alive with 2 goals from Rebecca, and one each from Mia and Megan in winning 4-0.  The midfield play of Amit, Sophia and LaLa allowed the Spirit to win the possession battle in all three games.  Joanna and Lauren played wide and really spread out the opponents while Haylee was relentless in her efforts to pressure the opposition’s defense.
