9.27 Soccer: Liberty Bell
Lady Trojan Soccer 2- Liberty Bell 0
Coach Lopez reports:
Manson played the ladies from Liberty Bell on Tuesday afternoon and came away with a difficult 2Ė0 win.
The game went into half time, after the first 40 minutes, with no score. Liberty Bell had good mid-field play but couldnít penetrate Mansonís strong defense. In the 63rd minute, Mansonís Eli Leyva powered one of her eight shots on goal. The ball bounced off the goal keeper, then bounced off advancing Itzel Castro which she followed and put in the net for the first score. Manson struck again in the 72nd minute when Itzel delivered a beautiful crossing ball from the left side which Eli was able to volley in from about 12 yards out for the offensive play of the day.
The defensive play of the day came on a shot from Liberty Bell in the second half which appeared to be a goal only to have the Manson goalkeeper, Alexis Castro, get the tips of her fingers on the ball to push it outside the left goal post to prevent the score.
The Lady Trojans are now 3 and 1 in the six team conference. They travel to Chelan for a non conference game this Thursday afternoon at 5:00 PM.
