The game is soccer is definitely a team sport that every person on the team desires to come away with the win. Together, each player works hard in positioning themselves into receiving the ball and moving it down field for a scoring chance. That’s what Gloucester City girl’s soccer team had to do in order to control the tempo early against visiting Lindenwold in a non-league game. Gloucester would score the first goal of the game and never looked back. The Lady Lions from Gloucester would win this game by a 4-1 margin. Erika Smizer scored a goal and had two assists.
Gloucester has a tough road ahead of them and it’s always good to get that first win of the season. The Tri-County Conference is loaded with teams trying to improve their standings in their division and Gloucester is one of those teams. Kristen Herda got the games first goal and they were not done. When the half ended, Vanessa Munn and Smizer’s goals brought the score to 3-0. The second half was evenly matched on the scoreboard with Bernadette Malone scoring for Gloucester and Brandi Flynn avoiding the shutout for Lindenwold.
