Spirit shut out Solano 2-0

The Thunderbird Spirit wrapped up their league play with a well earned victory over the Solano Strikers.  The win vaulted the Spirit into fourth place in the Gold Division of the California Competitive Soccer League.  The first goal was scored on a deflection off a curling corner kick by Mia Horn.  Rebecca Lehman added a 40 yard strike in the top netting to seal the victory.  The Spirit controlled possession of the game with outstanding passing and ball movement against a formidable opponent in Solano who has been runner up in the last two Association Cup tournaments. 

Middfielders Lala Zabat, Colleen Turpen, Sophia Ordonez, Joanna Chenaille, Makayla Modin, and Lauren Hesterman worked the ball up and down the field while defenders Alaina Casazza, Sarah Case, Haley St. George and Rebecca Lehman thwarted the Striker attack.  The Spirit forwards Haylee Pedro, Amit Dhillon, Megan Frizzie and Mia Horn applied constant pressure to the Striker defense.  Madison Kelly was rock solid in goal, smothering every Striker opportunity.

The Spirit opens the District Cup Tournament in Roseville against the Fair Oaks Strikers on Saturday December 4th.
