Congratulations to the Sussex Tech Women’s Varsity Soccer Team on their 1-0 win over Dover last Thursday night. With the win, the Ravens captured the Henlopen Conference Championship. This ends the Caesar Rodney Riders’ 15 consecutive year streak of Conference championships.
In the 67th minute, Sussex Tech’s leading scorer Michelle Laz finished a wonderful strike in the side netting for the match winner. The defense led by Rebekah Warrington, Haley Cherrix, Lexi Gale and Bethany Killmon played well limiting Dover’s opportunities on goal. Dylan Bryan, Sheila Artiga, Sam Hudson, Caroline Breeding, Kate Schroeder, Kaylee Bastianelli and Wuendy Cruz worked tirelessly at midfield. Goalie Leslie Fazio had six saves and one brilliant save to record the shutout.
The ladies begin state tournament play on Wednesday, May 22, against Dover on the Smyrna field. Game time is 8 p.m.
Coach Villa would like to thank parents, faculty, staff and the many students who have supported the team through this journey! Everyone is invited to continue cheering on the Lady Ravens on Wednesday evening.
