Lassen Arsenal shuts down the Anderson Bone Crushers
Sept. 16 — Lassen Arsenal was in action again Saturday, Sept. 6 at Riverside Park, as the team faced the Anderson Bone Crushers.
Both U-14 girls teams came in with a 1-0 record, and both looked to get out to an early lead. Anderson spent the first few minutes attacking the goal and winning several corner kicks.
Lassen goalkeeper Brittney Patton stepped up to the challenge with a couple of big saves early on.
Once Lassen cleared the ball from their goal area, the offense took over and pressured the Bone Crushers’ goal. Led by center midfielder Emma Newton, the Arsenal offense proved too much for the Anderson defenders. After several very dangerous balls through the middle and attempts on goal, Lassen scored on a cross by winger Amber Jackson to striker Kristin Zamora, who sent the ball on to winger Paige Martin, who then buried the ball in the back of the net.
