Saturday Stories (4/23/16): Starz, FC Spirit, Hurricanes
Lynnfield Starz outlast North Andover Quicksilver for 3-1 win
This past weekend we had an exciting game in North Andover as the previously undefeated home team went down in defeat to the Lynnfield Starz in U14G play. The Starz were led by Anna Maria Ferrante with three goals and Amberly McCarter, who played a solid game in goal, including a saved penalty shot midway through the second half. The Starz defense was anchored by the play of Liz Sykes and wingers Emma Nardone and Emma Ricciardi chipped in with solid games.
FC Spirit stay atop group with 2-2 tie
FC Spirit had a challenging game on Saturday against a good Amesbury team. The game saw great effort from some of the teams middle fielders, Colleen Mackey, Ava Buonfiglio, Gabby Mellor, Megan Chan and Suzanne Dickey. Ava Buonfiglio and Avery Comeau provided some exciting saves in goal. Another goal was scored by Caroline Waisnor and then complemented by a goal from Avery Comeau.
Lynnfield Hurricanes rumble to 3-2 victory
With vacation week winding down, the BU10 Hurricanes found themselves in a tough spot. With only 6 players for the game they had no subs, but this would not stop their desire to play the game they love. With great character, team play and some strategic coaching, the team pulled out a 3-2 victory. The kids were treated to a celebratory and unexpected treat of doughnuts, the after game snack of champions!
