Solebury School girls’ soccer was blanked by Life Center Academy, 7-0, on Tuesday. “Solebury had a few chances to score today, the first came from junior Lydia DeBevoise when she drilled a high-flying shot from outside the 18-yard box that had such a hard spin on it, when it reached the ground it spun just left of the goal post,” Spartans head coach Lisa Bernardini said. “The second chance came from a sophomore, Fiona Bauman, as she stole the ball from Life Center at the top of the 18-yard box, turned it and took a powerful shot, but the Life Center goalie made a good save. The third chance came from a great cross into the box and there was a scramble for the ball, as Solebury didn’t let it out for a minute, continuing to put it forward towards the goal, but couldn’t get enough of a foot on it to get a good shot off. Although the score doesn’t exactly illustrate it, this was a good match for both teams that fought hard, including Life Center which played down one player the entire game.”
