The team showed great teamwork for the goal between Lea Phillips, Savannah Fausto and Hubbard.
San Clemente 2, Newport Strikers 0: In a game that kept both keepers busy, Newport matched their opponents play for play, allowing only two San Clemente corner kicks to rebound into the net. Emma Erickson and Grace Emmel both contributed some booming clears on defense. Kappy Fuller and Molly McCunniff cut-off the opponents’ angles and constantly challenged to round out the Newport defense. Kierstyn Yardley and Colette Vigil were first to the ball, winning tackles in the midfield. They were supported by Mackenzie Gaddis, Kate Pipkin, and Brooke Meer with excellent positioning.
Brooke Schweitzer and Claire McCarthy had several good dribbling runs, followed by shots on goal from Gabby Shelley and Abbey Pickett. Logan Grove was solid in the goal for Newport with double-digit saves.
