September 28, 2014- The U11 Premier (SS Select M; Purple Division) girls kept parents, fans and family members on the edge of their seats this week with another close and exciting game against the Strikers. The girls started strong with a high right-corner goal from Avery Piccard on a nice assist from Maria Marcolini. Meg Hogan had a strong run and some impressive evasive moves that enabled her to beat her defenders and find the back of the net. Giving Select a 2-0 lead. The Strikers struck back scoring 2 unanswered goals. Select goalie, Anna Williams (aka "Anna-mal") got a work-out with a sweet series of three saves to keep her team in the running. With less than 7 minutes left in the game, it looked like we were headed for a 2-2 tie when the Strikers scored again. Determined to pull the game back from the brink, Meg Hogan drove to the net and scored with another gorgeous poised shot that sailed over the Striker goalie's head. With less than 3 minutes left both teams were on the hunt. Sadly, it was the Strikers who were able to find a way to score one more for a 4-3 win over a hard-working and tough Select team.
