The U15 Virginia team had 2 wins and a tie to secure a spot in the Regional Semi-final in Kirkwood, Delaware. They defeated a tough Eastern PA team 1-0 with a breakaway goal by forward Ashley Skertic in the early minutes of the game. In the high scoring game versus Western PA, a hat trick by midfielder Annah Lindberg helped secure the 4-4 tie. Against Eastern NY, Skertic's early header found the back of the net. The rest of the game was a hard fought battle with both teams having opportunities to score.
If the team can defeat West Virginia in the semi-final, they will meet either Maryland or New York West for the Final. The Regional Champions will then compete at Nationals in March 2012.
Best of luck Annah and Ashley!!!
