Phantoms Vs. Bulldogs
Delaney York of the Phantoms played splendidly and helped out her team immensely with her “don’t give up” attitude and positive spirit. As always, Christie Rose Woodside was at the top of her game, using physical play to stop the opponent’s momentum. Felicia Spoth’s blazing speed rewarded her with a goal, and success on both sides of the ball. Kelsey Carlson was not going to be out hustled or out muscled by anyone. Her fearless play brought about some shining moments for her on the field. Katie Barron played with the rock of consistency that she has shown all year. Ryan Accomazzo’s play was extraordinary with drawbacks freezing opponents dead in their track and focus that was unmatched. Connor Clermont was a defensive standout, pushing opponents to the max to get by him, and demonstrating awesome balance and coordination in getting off a beautiful one-touch goal that was passed between the seams of the opponents from Garrett Leao. Garrett himself was simply unstoppable and provided his opponents with a workshop on footwork and determination. Sam Bowley was a man on the mission and his rocket launched shots on goal struck fear into the hearts of the opponents. Finally, Ryan Ludford charismatic play was topped off with the trick of the century for soccer. After dribbling the ball around the opponents, he took a rest and sat on the ball for a moment. With the opponents baffled, Ryan proceeded to get up and start to dribble with the ball again past the defender to take a shot on goal.

In a hard-fought contest, the United’s passing was strong, and their defense led by Hannah Sheldon kept the ball moving while forcing the opponent outside to protect goalies Rylan Grodin and Mitchell Tine, who both played exceptional games in net. The offense was fueled by Amber Joyce, who scored a hat trick while adding numerous other chances offensively. Solid heads-up passing and ball control made this all possible with amazing assists by Taylor Keating and Graylen Scarsdale. Taylor and Graylen kept the defense backing up into their own end all afternoon. Owen Wetherell, Evan Rist, Lexi Powers and Victoria Vitale controlled the mid field with tireless hustle on both sides of the pitch for the United. A big thank you to all of you for a very enjoyable season.

Brittany Belanger played a strong half in goal making many key saves.
