The Lady Firebirds played a great game against the #2 team in the Nation (who also holds a 37 game win streak) as the traveled to Beavercreek to face the Beavers. They gave up an early goal when a Creek player, who had fallen near the goal, had the ball hit off of her heel and go across the goal-line. The 2nd goal, also in the first half came off a penalty kick caused by a Creek player jumping up into the air and falling on the ball as she landed.
The second half Fairmont created a few good opportunities, but were unable to capitalize. Creek would go on to score 2 more the second half. The first was a screaming shot from the center of the 18 yard box, as it went up and over the leaping Firebird goalkeeper’s hands. The final goal came late in the game when last year’s player of the year broke free and juked her way past the defenders, sending the ball far post and into the back of the net.
