So far this season, Cherry Hill West has done what most had thought the Lady Lions soccer team could do. That is to win those games they were supposed to win and remain competitive on the field. That effort has rewarded the Lions with a four game winning streak to open the season. No team should ever be considered as an easy team to beat because there will always be eleven players on the field working hard. Timber Creek was that team standing in the way of West picking up their fifth win of the season. Arielle Caldas was responsible for giving the Lions the early lead in this Olympic Conference game. Cherry Hill West would pick up the shutout as keeper Kristen De’Ambra preserved the 3-0 victory.
It has been an enjoyable season for outdoor sports with the weather making athletic directors feeling good about not having to worry about rescheduling games due to inclement weather. So when Timber Creek took the field looking for their third win of the season, it would be West who made themselves right at home. Caldos would score her first of two goals giving the Lions the early 1-0 lead. Timber Creek keeper Jen Bledsoe was busy in front of the net stopping ten shots from going into the net. But it would be those three shots that got by and into the net that decided this game. Angie Wilmer would account for the third goal of the game scored by Cherry Hill West.
