Powerpuffs Fly Into 1st Place At SFDS Soccer Classics
Marissa Scotto powered the come-from -behind effort. TopTen led 1-0 on a goal by Lauren Perrone when Marissa scored late in the first half and again early in the second half to turn the tables. (Charlotte Werner assisted on Lauren's goal.) Therese Boyle made it 3-1 when she stole a goal kick and blasted it home before the defense could recover.
Late in the second half, TopTen cut the lead to 3-2. Shannon Twomey netted a tap-in goal off a sweet give- and- go with Lauren. The Powerpuffs held firm from there to secure the win and take over first place. Earlier, the Powerpuffs had dispatched the Mojo Jojos 4-0.
The Coneheads moved into a tie for second with TopTen, thanks to a 3-1 victory over the Mojo Jojos. Erin Blum and Anna Charles were key. Erin scored off a corner kick by Anna. A few minutes later, Erin returned the favor and set up a goal by Anna.
