LONESTAR SC, SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES SHINE IN SECOND SET OF FEATURE GAMES

It was an excellent result for Lonestar while the San Jose Earthquakes displayed why they're the top team in the U-15 age group of the U.S. Soccer Girls' Development Academy. Here's a recap of Matchday 3's feature games at the Spring Showcase.

U-15 - Lonestar 4 SC, Washington Spirit - Baltimore Armour 0

Ella Eggleston hit a hat trick and Teah Vloedman added a tally as Lonestar ran out 4-0 winners against Washington Spirit - Baltimore Armour. Eggleston opened the scoring in the 10th minute when she whipped in a free kick from the right side of the box that sped past the Spirit goalkeeper. Eggleston was at it again in the 30th minute when she picked up the ball just insider her own half and dribbled through three players before burying the ball into the far corner. She then completed her hat trick early in the second-half. Makenna O'Toole picked off an errant pass and drove at the Spirit back-line before laying the ball off for Eggleston to smash it into the upper corner. Vloedman put the cherry on top in the 65th minute when she struck from outside the box to cap off a dominant performance.

U-15 - San Jose Earthquakes 3, Cincinnati Development Academy 0

The San Jose Earthquakes improved to a league best 24-0-3 with a 3-0 victory over Cincinnati Development Academy. The Earthquakes controlled possession and patiently looked to break down a compact Cincinnati defense. Their probing and prodding was rewarded in the 32nd minute as Jasmine Aikey calmly rolled home a penalty following a hand-ball in the box. San Jose asserted its dominance just before halftime when Mailin Orozco finished off a fine-flowing move with a lovely curling shot into the far upper-corner. Peyton Marcisz completed the scoring in the second half, darting to her left inside the box before unleashing a drive back across the face of the goalkeeper. San Jose recorded its 17th clean-sheet of the season and is just one goal away from hitting the century mark on the year. Following hat tricks in their first match, Aikey and Orozco now have four goals each in the Spring Showcase while the quest for an undefeated regular season continues to become a more realistic objective
