DIAMONDS SHINE IN JEFFERSON!!!
On the road for a second straight week, the U12 Girls Diamonds squad traveled to Jefferson for a 4pm kick off.
The teams traded chances over the course of the first half and Diamonds goal keeper, Jade Hueston, kept a cleansheet as the girls headed into halftime 0-0.
In the second half, Gracie Kelly opened the scoring for the Diamonds offense feed from Gianna Green.
Saige Price extended the lead to 2-0 off a feed from Kelly. Five minutes later Sophie Cicerone extended her goal streak to start the season to two games off a pretty build up from newly acquired Cory Hueston and Kelly. The route was on so the Diamonds thought.
Jefferson rallied for 2 goals late in the second but the Diamonds held on for their second road win of the season, Manuela Restrepo and Andrea DiSessa controlled the middle of the pitch throughout the game.
The defense was led by solid efforts from Laila Guiliana, Abby Holmes, Shannon Hunt, and Hannah Huang.
Good luck this Sunday as the Diamonds open their home campaign!
