The Richmond Kickers U14 Girls Ukrop Park team stormed to the top of the VSL Division 2 on Saturday with a 2-0 win at Capital Park. The girls soaked up a lot of pressure in the first half, with dominant defensive displays from Annika Yaratha and Ruth Wagaman-Eure, and an excellent goalkeeping performance from Anna Reker to preserve the clean sheet, 0-0 at half time. Tessa Manring had caused the Strikers' defense some problems in the first half, and she broke the deadlock midway through the second, striking an assist from Josie Hammer over the keeper and into the back of the net. Riley LaPres secured the W towards the end, when she drove a Phoebe Spalding through ball into the top corner. Congrats to Coach Andy and the girls for a great game, and for earning 'team of the week'!
