Spurs Sink Sole SistersPosted: October 9, 2013
LA Hotspur FC (4-0-0) extended their LA Muni win-streak to four last weekend with a 10-nil victory over Sole Sisters (0-0-4).
The scoring opened when captain Rachelle Lazzaro centered the ball across the face of the net. When Sole Sisters were unable to effectively clear the ball out, fellow captain Brittney Watson capitalized and knocked the ball into the back of the net from the six-yard line.
Becca Bullard was next to notch a point for the Spurs. The play started when defender Rae Fuhrman cleared the ball out of the back. Gretchen Miller won the ball, beat a player and sent a through ball to Bullard on the right side of the field. Bullard cut in to beat her defender and scored to put the Spurs up by two.
Bullard was next to score, this time assisted by captain Oriana Nierojewski. Nierojewski crossed the ball from the right side of the field to Bullard, who headed the ball in at the far post.
Hotspur’s fourth goal of the game came on a play started by Bullard, who cross the ball from the left side of the field to Miller on the opposite side of the pitch. Miller sent the ball back across the face of the net to Flora Guilbaut who needed just one touch to put the ball into the back of the net.
It was another cross that led to the Spurs next goal. Once again Nierojewski and Bullard combined, with Nierojewski once again finding Bullard on the end of her cross.
The next two goals came courtesy of Guilbaut, first when Guilbaut capitalized on a failed clearance in the box, and later when Guilbaut and Nierojewski executed a give and go combination in the box, culminating in a finish by Guilbaut.
Miller had the next goal on an assist by Catherine Davila. The play started when Miller played a through ball to Davila who then cut back and dropped the ball back across the face of the net to Miller.
Fuhrman then netted her first goal of the season when the Spurs earned a free kick just outside the penalty box. Fuhrman stepped up for the kick and drilled the ball into the back of the net.
Hotspur’s final goal of the game came courtesy of another free kick. This time, Rachelle Lazzaro took the free kick, chipping it over the defense to Nierojewski who was running on the ball. Nierojewski flicked a header into the back of the net for the score.
On the game, Davila tended net for the first half while Fuhrman and newcomer Katy Murakami split time in between the pipes for the final 45 minutes of play.
This Fall season, the Spurs have collectively recorded a 9-0-0 record across three leagues. The side is now 4-0-0 in LA Municipal League play, 1-0-0 in Coast Soccer League play and 4-0-0 in LA Muni 7-aside play so far this season.
