Girls soccer team has

stellar season

The Streetsboro United 10-and-younger girls soccer team concluded a successful fall season with an appearance in the finals of the Bothwell Cup.

The girls, led by coaches Chad Christine and Jennifer Richmond, won the regular season title in the C2 division of the Greater Akron Amateur Soccer Association with a 7-1 record and entered the postseason playoffs as the top seed.

In the first round of the playoffs, Streetsboro defeated Wadsworth 5-0, the team's fourth clean sheet of the season. In the championship game, Streetsboro defeated Chippewa by a 6-1 final.

At the Bothwell Cup held in North Canton, the team faced Wadsworth in pool play, winning 4-0 this time and then followed up that win with a 4-0 win against Parma Heights.

Streetsboro defeated Field by a 2-1 score to finish 3-0 and in first place in its pool to advance to the finals, where it drew Parma Heights as an opponent again.

Chances were plenty for the team in the finals, but no one was able to find the back of the net and after regulation, the game went to penalty kicks.

Despite some stellar saves by goalkeeper Jessica Nuber, Streetsboro lost in the 10th round of penalty kicks.

During the four tournament games, Streetsboro allowed just one goal.

For the fall season, the girls finished with a 12-1-1 with the tie going to penalties. They scored 51 goals in total, while surrendering just nine.

In addition to Nuber, the defense was led by Abby Pincoe, Jordan Richmond and Maria Botella. Offensive efforts were keyed by Ella Deevers, Kaylee Christine, Erika Richards and Camron Stewart.

Mackenzie Mobley and Hayley Smith provided significant support on both ends of the field and the team welcomed guest players Emma Flick and Maddy Maynard as part of the Bothwell Cup team.
