Match Recaps

U-15

FC Virginia (4-2-2) extended its lead on four teams in the Chesapeake Division for second place, defeating fourth place Charlotte Soccer Academy (3-5-2) 4-1 on Saturday at Evergreen Sportsplex. Midfielders Cassidy Brown and Victoria Powell each had a goal and an assist in the match, while defender Megan Ogawa and midfielder Caitlyn Arroyo each found the net as well in the win. Eight different players have now scored at least once for FCV through eight games, as the balanced attack has put together the division’s most efficient offense. The midfield duo of Brown and Powell have combined for seven assists on the season, setting up nearly half of the team’s 15 goals to this point.

On Sunday, the tough defense of McLean Youth Soccer (1-3-4) was on display once again, as the team earned its third clean sheet of the season in a scoreless draw against Charlotte at Lewinsville Park. McLean has not allowed more than one goal in a game all season, conceding a total of just five through eight contests.

U-16

Amy Thompson set up Renee Kohler for the game’s only goal as second place FC Virginia’s (6-2-0) back line dug in to shut out fifth place Charlotte SA (3-6-1) on Saturday evening at Evergreen Sportsplex. The stout FCV defense has caught fire since giving up three goals to the high-powered Richmond United offense back on October 17, shutting out three straight opponents since the 3-0 defeat. With just five goals conceded through eight matches, FCV’s minuscule 0.62 Goals Against Average is the lowest in the Chesapeake Division.

Gabriella Gordon brace and a clean sheet by the FC Virginia (8-0-0) back line helped the team maintain its unblemished record and extend its division lead, as FCV defeated Charlotte SA (2-4-4-) 2-0 on Saturday afternoon in Northern Virginia. University of Illinois 2017 commit Katie Le added an assist for FCV, tying Catherine Kwitnieski for the team lead with four and extending her points streak to six games. The shutout was the second in the last three games for the FCV defense.

University of North Carolina 2017 commit Emily Fox led the way for FCV with two goals and an assist, setting up Dartmouth 2016 commit Zoe Boocock for the other score. Michelle Paredes and Florida State 2016 commit Julia Phillips notched assists on Fox’s goals, while University of Virginia 2016 commit Kayla Morrison, Florida State 2016 commit Briana Alston, Georgetown 2016 commit Meaghan Nally, University of Florida 2016 commit Lauren Kelly and the rest of the FCV back line teamed up for their second clean sheet of the season.

McLean followed up with a 5-0 rout of Charlotte, and has now scored 10 goals in two games since the start of November. Since starting the season with three losses in its first four games, McLean has reeled off three straight wins and hold a slim lead over FCV for the No. 2 spot in the Chesapeake Division.
