SOCCER: MUSA 01 Gold Flyers make impressive showing in Ohio

RICHMOND — The MUSA 01 Gold Flyers traveled to Columbus, Ohio April 20 and 21 to participate in the Club Ohio Nike Challenge Cup.

In Saturday’s two opening contests, the Flyers combined aggressive offense and organized defense to defeat the JR. Irish Girls and the ZYSA Green Team, setting up a semifinal match on Sunday morning against the Grove City Crush.

After squandering a number of golden opportunities in that match, and having given up a well-struck goal from distance, with less than a minute left the Flyers swarmed the offensive zone and finally scored the matching tally, putting them into the afternoon championship game.

In the final match, the Flyers played an outstanding field game but the girls from Madison County found themselves down 3-0 mid-way through the second half.

But, the Flyers converted two opportunities in a five-minute span. The final 10 minutes, CE Extreme put up a forceful defense, the Flyers playing with frantic energy, and parents cheering their hearts out, both teams gave championship effort, with the Flyers falling just short in the end 3-2.

The team incudes: Front row (from left) — Kyla Lloyd, Katelyn Lowery, Rachel Hughes, Camryn Roberts, Emily Nigro, Lynsey Patrick, Josie Lehman and Lexie Rose. Back row — Coach Minyoung Bowling, Karson Ball, Moira Wideman, Kiara Long, Madison Kallenberger, Ally Bowling, Savannah Saylor, Carolyn Westerfield and Coach Mark Nigro
