Extreme U-15

Last Saturday the Park City Extreme Soccer Club U-15 girls won their season opener 5-2 over the West Wind Storm. The Extreme girls had to compete with only 10 players while their opponent had a full team of 11, plus substitutes. The low roster was due to sickness and spring break travel. Goals were scored by Lucy Williams (2), Gillian Gorelik (2), and Bridget Chapman (1). A strong defensive effort was provided by Elizabeth Briggs, Kassie Scheider, Heather Reynolds, and goalkeeper Brianna Turner. The mid-fielders kept up the offensive pressure providing assists and defensive help when needed. Hanna Glasheen, Briana Diacopoulos, and Bailey Gowen covered the entire field during the 80-minute contest. The next game for the U-15s is April 19 when they travel to West Valley City to take on the West United Classic.
