Lindbergh High girls’ soccer team wins three in a row


After posting wins over Mehlville and Parkway Central, the Lindbergh High School girls’ soccer team finished a three-game run last week with an impressive 7-0 win over Smith Cotton of Sedalia.

“We had three wins last week, so it was a decent week,” Lindbergh head coach Mark Giesing told the Call. “We actually saw a lot of our younger players really come into their own against Smith Cotton.”

The Flyers (4-1-1, 1-0 Suburban West) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half of play before bombing the Tigers with five goals in the second half.

Brittany Casey led the Flyers with three goals against Smith Cotton. The freshman midfielder’s three-goal outburst included her first goal as a Flyer.

“Brittany has a ton of potential,” Giesing said. “She’s a very strong player that has a very powerful shot outside of the box.”

Flyer forward Aly Reynolds was right behind Casey with two goals of her own. Reynolds is second in goals scored at Lindbergh as the junior has four goals.

“Aly ended up having a very nice game,” Giesing said. “I think that it’s now a matter of her gaining her confidence in every game she plays.”

Sophomore forward Aimee Ubriaco scored one goal and added two assists to her six goals and four assists this season.

“We actually took Aimee out of the game early,” Giesing said. “She’s really been laying the ball off to her teammates and it’s beginning to pay off for us.”

Another sophomore notching a goal for the Flyers was midfielder Lauren Moran, who scored her first goal of the season.

“Lauren’s one of several girls that’s fighting for that left wing starting position,” Giesing said. “We’re actually seeing a nice healthy competition between her and Tristan Stolz and Miranda Fisher.”

The Flyers are back in action Wednesday — after the Call went to press — when they travel to Hillsboro for a Suburban West Conference match with the Northwest Lions.

“They (Northwest) have some players that have quite a few goals,” Giesing said. “Playing at Northwest on a narrow field will be challenging because they can really pack it in on defense.”

Lindbergh’s game at Northwest begins at 6 p.m. at Northwest Valley Middle School.
