The Rock fought off a pesky Chatham team yesterday in The Park for a thrilling 2-1 win.
The win moves them to 6-1 on the season and at the top of the table in Flight 5.
Birthday girl Chelsey Fenyk celebrated in style scoring in the opening minutes of the game to run her goal scoring streak to 3 games. The goal was converted off a feed from Gracie Kelly.
The Rock carried the 1-0 score into the half. Chatham came out firing in the second half and got the equalizer off a corner kick.
Fenyk again made her presence felt drawing a penalty kick half way through the second half. In a heated sideline debate with the other coaches, Coach Kelly chose PK ace Jess Byrne to step the spot. Byrne converted and the Rock held on for the 2-1 win.
Gianna Green, Gracie Kelly, Ashley Pomante and Ashley Peterson combined for the win in goal.
Manuela Restrepo and Shannon Hunt held down the back line. Abbie Franco and Isabelle Medich created scoring chances from the midfield.
The Rock are 5 points clear with 3 games remaining and travel to Caldwell next week. Keep it up girls
