Even though the rain washed out any chance of playing any games on Saturday, some West Haven Youth Soccer League teams saw action Sunday afternoon. The U-10 girls travel team won their last game of the season on Sunday, away, in Southington, 5-3. Goals were scored by Camilla Murphy, Kayci Gayle and three goals by Isabella Antonucci. Strong defense was played by Amiyah Jones, helping to lead the Westies to an undefeated season.
The Elite Soccer Camps U-12 Lightning traveled to Clinton Sunday afternoon. The Lightning won, 8-2, behind a Jaylyn Powell hat trick, including a “golazzo” scored directly off of a corner kick. Jaelyn Beauvais, Cierra Harp, Alexandria Nunes and Chloe Whelan also scored in the win. Molly Gunning and Aylin Soto were solid in the midfield, playing a strong game and putting their teammates into good positions with well-timed passes.
The Elite Soccer Camps U-14 girls hosted Orange Sunday afternoon. Although the Westies dominated much of the first half, they could not find the back of the net. The Orange keeper made a great save on a Camryn Beauvais shot, and Ariana Izzo saw a couple of well taken shots just miss the goal. In the second half, the Westies moved the ball better, with Abigail Phelan and Lola DiNuzzo working on the flanks. Melissa Tsakonas provided great support at right back and Camryn Flaherty did the same at left back.
Late in the game, a beautiful passing sequence involving Phelan, Olivia Trenchard, Brooke Flaherty and Izzo saw Beauvais through on goal. The goalkeeper fouled Beauvais inside the penalty box, setting up Izzo to take the penalty kick.
Izzo calmly put the ball into the side netting to give West Haven the 1-0 lead, which they were able to hold onto oil the end of the game.
