Solebury School girls’ soccer fell to visiting Abington Friends School, 6-0, on Monday. “Although the result was a loss, there were a number of bright spots for Solebury,” head coach Timothy Hall said. “Junior ’keeper Vikki Rueda-Juarez had another strong game in goal, making 15 saves; right back Nicole Cosner continued to show she has a bright future in front of her as she did well to deny pressure and distribute the ball confidently; Helen Jin brought excellent energy to her position at right half; and Addie Groth-Tuft, Max Brewington, Jess Randolph and Olivia Lutz did well, particularly in the second half, to possess the ball and begin to link passes. We also enjoyed the debut of our two seventh-grade players, Kaitlyn Verhoest and Kelly Hochenberger; both did an excellent job.” The Spartan girls will be back in action this Thursday as they play host to Life Center Academy at 4 p.m.

Solebury School girls’ soccer fell to Foundation Collegiate Academy, 2-1, in overtime on Thursday. “Led by captains Max Brewington, Carol Wright and Vikki Rueda-Juarez, Solebury controlled play for much of the game, but could not unlock Foundation Collegiate’s defense,” head coach Timothy Hall said. “Foundation Collegiate struck first in the 7th minute, but Solebury evened the score late in the first half when Brewington played a through ball that Helen Jin drove home for her first career goal. Although Solebury created a number of excellent opportunities in the second half, the game remained tied and went to overtime. Late in the second 10-minute overtime period, Foundation Collegiate took advantage on a counterattack and ended the game on a strong half volley. Junior captain and goalkeeper Rueda-Juarez, supported ably by center backs Wright and Abbie Rains, did an outstanding job limiting Foundation Collegiate’s opportunities. Addie Groth-Tuft, Olivia Lutz and Fiona Bauman worked hard to create many of Solebury’s scoring chances. Eighth-grader Nicole Cosner had a strong debut, playing an excellent outside back, providing long, powerful throw-ins from the right side and working aggressively to contribute to the offense.” Solebury will be back in action Monday, Sept. 21 when it hosts Abington Friends School at 4 p.m.
