Ranked fourth in the nation by TopDrawerSoccer.com, Waubonsie Valley entered the 2016 season on the road at Lyons Township. Head Coach Julie Bergstrom has a challenge on her hands early in the season incorporating a lot of new and young talent into the starting 11, including a new netminder Sarah Young.
Warriors had a number of chances in close in the first half to get a goal, thanks to the efforts of senior Paige Filipek. The Lions countered with strong goaltending by Emily Johnson to keep it scoreless at the half. A miscue by Young early in the second half led to the lone goal of the match by Lyons Township’s Grace Salvino as the Lions upset Waubonsie Valley in the first game of the season.
