The U16 girls Avalanche continued their winning streak last week Thursday when they traveled to Tonawanda. The team played down one player to match Tonawanda’s 10, with Emma Gang making her debut in goal.
For Springville, goals were scored by Shelby Stisser, Morgan Kotlarsz, Cora Boundy, Jackie Roggie and Hannah Carrow, with assists by Boundy, Carrow, Stisser and Mabel Robinson.
Great defensive effort was put in by Shay Ellis and Maddie Schwanekamp, and Gang and Logan Lukert combined efforts for the shutout. At midfield, the Dziak sisters, Destiny Lightcap and Megan Seifried controlled the play.
The 5-0 win put the girls’ record for the season at 3-0-1 as they get ready to host Arcade on Thursday, July 5. The girls are also scheduled to host Medina at home on Tuesday, July 10.
Also last Thursday, the U16 boys Griffins faced off at home against Lancaster-Depew.
The heat proved to be a challenge for the boys and despite a tough game, they lost 3-1. Springville’s lone goal was scored by Jake Schreiber with a ripping shot from 5 yards past the 18 line.
The loss puts the boys’ record at 3-2-1. Next up, they take on Kenmore United in Kenmore on Thursday, July 5.
The U14 girls Avalanche headed to Orchard Park on Monday, where they were forced to play one down due to lack of players in attendance. The undefeated OP team quickly dominated the game and didn’t look back, and the outnumbered Wildcats had a hard time keeping up with the high temps with no subs to give them a break.
The girls next play at home against East Aurora on Friday, July 6, which is a rescheduled game from earlier in the season, and then again on Monday when they travel to Niagara Wheatfield.
The U12 boys Griffins continued their winning streak on Monday when they took on Alden at their new home field at Colden’s Kummer Park. Springville was a goal scoring machine: Memphis Brueckman with 4, David Martens with 2, Garrett Karb, Cole Gabel, Dylon Emerling and Graeden Heichberger with 1 each, brought the score to 10-0.
On Monday, July 9, they take on West Seneca at home.
