Lightning Bolts win two
Submitted By Blaise Castren
Lightning Bolts, of FC Fremont Girl's U-14 House League, defeated Icebreakers, 1-0, on Tuesday, Sept. 15, and followed that with a 4-0 drubbing of Jabberwockies on Saturday, Sept. 19, after suffering a 2009 fall season-opening defeat.
Aaryonna Lopez scored the lone goal against Ice Breakers while Zoe Rayburn did an excellent job shutting down the opponents' top offensive player. Kailey Richardson and Cheyenne Gilman played well defensively for the Bolts.
Lightning Bolts exploded in the second half to defeat Jabberwockies. Synclaire Hamilton sparked the victory over Jabberwockies, scoring two goals and adding an assist as well as just missing on two other golden scoring opportunities. Elena Strom and Samantha Stephens scored the other two Lightning goals while Gilman had an assist.
Bolts scored in the opening five minutes on a Hamilton goal, but led only 1-0, despite taking eight shots. Jenna Wondka had an excellent game passing and took one of the shots on goal. Amy de Landa was just wide on one of Wondka's passes and also fed Alexia Dentoni for a great scoring chance.
Claire Castren and Jamie Fernandez had good games for the winners.
