Girls soccer

The Harford United Flash (15-2-2) raised its Washington Area Girls Soccer Division I League record to 8-0 with two victories in under-14 play.

The most recent victory, a 5-0 triumph over Vienna Voltage, showed the skills the Flash team has used to stay undefeated in the league.

With the score 1-0 at the end of the first half, the Flash scored four unanswered goals in the second half for the victory.

Sue Gianniccini scored the first goal off a deflection of a shot by Jen Cook, and Shanna Ziegenfuss broke loose with a three-goal scoring barrage. Tracy Wolf and Gianniccini provided assists.

Cindy Wolf scored the team's first-half goal off a cross from Brooke Stastny. Halfback Lauren Hess filled in at goalkeeper, but was only called on to make one save due to another strong effort from the Flash defense.

In an earlier 1-0 win over the Springfield Legend at Severna Park High School, Ziegenfuss assisted Jen Coulsen for the winning score midway through the second half. The Legend is the Virginia state champion.

Hess was in the goal for the Flash that game also, as keepers Tina Steck and Katie Bowman were out due to injury. Hess had three saves. Defenders Katie Tiburzi and Nicole Froman made goal-saving stops to preserve the shutout.
