Columbia Spirit under-15 girls fall short in Raleigh tournament

Recreation roundup

December 10, 1992|By Rich Scherr | Rich Scherr,Contributing Writer

The Columbia Spirit girls under-15 soccer team had two eas victories before suffering a heart-breaking, 1-0 loss last weekend in the third round of the prestigious Raleigh (N.C.) Shootout tournament.

After beating the Atlanta Tophatters, 6-0, and the Prince William Pizzazz, 10-0, the Spirit dominated the host Raleigh Spartans before giving up the game-winning goal with five minutes to go.

Columbia's offense, led by Katie Douglas, was unable to convert on numerous scoring opportunities, and the defense, led by Allison Schuck and Jackie Jamaris, held Raleigh in check for most of the game.

In earlier games, however, the Spirit had no trouble scoring goals. Wesley Daughters and Abby Bausman each scored twice, and Michelle Clare and Julie Kickham added a goal apiece in Columbia's opening-game win over Atlanta.

Then the team scored five times in the first 18 minutes on its way to routing Prince William.

Clare and Bausman scored twice, and Lauren Molinaro, Kickham, Ashley Decker, Shannon Otto, Jackie Jamaris and Meg Giorno added one apiece.
