A cold and rainy night in Aurora for girls soccer action. Metea Valley (1-3-3) hosting Neuqua Valley (1-1-1). The last time these two teams met, the Wildcats came away with a 2-0 win in the Sectional Final.
Goals would come at a premium in this one. Five minutes into the match, Nicole Mondi would get a chance with the free kick, but Amy Ahern snuffs out the bouncing ball, then lunging at a cutting Veda Tappin looking for the rebound goal. Both netminders being tested early, Yanel Ortiz making the save on the Emily Lindbloom attempt from 18 yards out.
Jumping ahead to the 60th minute of the match, we get our first goal of the game. Jade Eriksen-Russo’s fiith goal of the season proves to be the game-winner.
Neuqua getting a late chance to tie the match, but Alyssa Bombacino’s attempt sails wide of the net. Wildcats are shut out for the third time in four games as Metea hangs on for win number two on the season.
