How It Happened
The Spartans scored four unanswered goals after St. Croix Lutheran took the lead in the 18th minute of the game. Freshman Ella Tuccitto opened the scoring for the Spartans in the 22nd minute scoring a header goal from a free kick taken by senior Avery Schwark.
A minute later 8th grader Rachael Scufsa passed the ball to Schwark who would get a goal of her own firing a shot from 25-yards out with the left boot. Senior Norah Larson switched the Spartans point of attack finding junior Callie Gustafson out wide on the left side of the field. Gustafson would score her first varsity goal in the 62nd minute as she found the goalkeeper off her line and drove the ball over the goalkeeper’s hands and into the back of the net. In the 70th minute senior Bekkah Scufsa scored the Spartans’ fourth goal on a pass from fellow senior Ava-Rose Yang.
The Spartans travel for an away game at Metro East Conference opponent Tartan on Thursday, September 12th. JV kicks off at 5:15pm, varsity kicks off at 7pm.
