Last Thursday, the U16 girls Avalanche traveled to Akron. After waiting out a thunderstorm, the game began 30 minutes late, and resulted in a 1-1 tie. Dru Robinson scored the goal for Springville, with the assist from Emma Gang. On the defensive end, Rachel Stressinger and Shay Ellis put in solid effort, and Logan Lukert played a great game in net. Lefties Shelby Stisser and Lily Dziak kept things strong on their side of the midfield.  The girls had a bye this week but will play in Orchard Park on Thursday, June 14.

Also last Thursday, the U16 boys Griffins faced off against Amherst for their home opener. After going down 1-0, the Griffins stepped it up, and came back for a 2-1 win. Both goals were scored by Jake Schreiber.

On Monday, the U14 girls Wildcats took on South Buffalo at home, and came away with a 7-2 loss. The girls really came alive in the end, with both Springville goals scored by Alainey Leatherbarrow late in the game. The girls will look for their first regular season win on Monday, June 11 when they take on Concord (Fredonia area), the other new club in the league, at home.

The U12 boys Griffins had a bye this week and will face Yemen on June 11.

All four teams will also compete in the Odenbach tournament this weekend, June 9 and 10, at the West Seneca Soccer Complex. Good luck to all teams as they make their tournament debut!
