Great Start to 2014 Campaign!

A shutout, plus a goal in each half, equals a great start to our season!  After a very good 2-week preseason at FSU, we traveled up to Latrobe, PA for our opening game Friday night against St. Vincent.  Several of our players had great chances to score in each half but it was Erin Worthman who finished hers and scored both goals for a decisive 2-0 win.  We defended well all over the field and gave SVC very little time with the ball throughout the full 90 minutes.  Shown below, Jessi Martz takes a shot on Friday night.  The players have really earned some time off this weekend before classes begin and we travel for a night game on Wednesday.

First Day Off!

The players have earned their first full day off but since we are still in preseason, we took advantage of the day to visit Deep Creek Lake and the Wisp Resort for some fun and teambuilding.  The team is shown below at the Wisp Adventure Sports Center after their ride on the Wisp Mt. Coaster.  As they await the 1,300 foot incline to begin the ride, Steph Fazenbaker and Jessi Martz show their nervous smiles...

Great Start to Preseason Competition!

Today we finished our first full week of preseason with a scrimmage at Division II Shepherd University.  Stephanie Fazenbaker had a terrific start to the match intercepting a pass from the keeper in the 7th minute and shooting it near-post nicely.  2 minutes later, Nicole Gernert beat an off-side trap with a great long pass that Fazenbaker finished smartly after dribbling past the keeper.   Brooke Longo then took over the game sending a great ball into the box that Jessi Martz finished with a sharp volley before scoring one herself with a hard shot from 25 yards.  She added a PK later on and then freshman defender Lia Kelly dribbled nicely into midfield before feeding Chelsie McCoy for a breakaway goal.   We scored several quality goals and got a solid performance from our defense and keepers to earn the shutout.  Everyone got a chance to show the progress we've made in preseason as we took a big step forward as a team.   Our regular season opener is next on Friday at St.Vincent in Latrobe, PA at 5pm.

Well Deserved Night Off

After going full speed for 6 days to start the preseason, the team got a well-deserved break to visit the scenic overlook at Dan's Rock to take in the sunset.  A visit to the Frostburg Freeze capped off a fun night for the team.

Worthman has Busy Summer

Rising Junior Erin Worthman had a busy summer playing with the Washington Spirit U-20 team. This is the youth developmental team affiliated with the full profession Spirit club of the NWSL.  They traveled all over the mid-Atlantic region and qualified for the playoff final weekend in Florida in late July.   She led the team in scoring and is seen here taking a corner during the Florida playoff weekend.

Team Camp and Stadium Tour

The girls from Smithsburg HS visited this past weekend for a Team camp. They got to tour the new Stadium, in photo 2, Zoe and Hannah seem a little confused about their photo for the scavenger hunt (to have the clocktower in the background) but their team won the contest! The team shot is before their final camp game. Go Leopards!
