Wyomissing dominates Fleetwood in BCIAA girls soccer semifinal

Amid a playoff run and still undefeated, Wyomissing showed Tuesday that it is peaking at the right time.

In a BCIAA girls soccer semifinal against Fleetwood, the No. 2 seed Spartans scored seven goals in the first half on their way to an 8-3 win over the fifth-seeded Tigers at Flannery Field in Wyomissing.

The defending champion Spartans advance to the title game on Thursday against either Wilson, a 3-0 winner over Exeter in the other semifinal, at Tulpehocken at 5:30 p.m.

“I thought it was the best first half they’ve played all season,” Wyomissing coach Rachel Hoffman said. “They were very connected and they made some really nice passes.”

Wyomissing moved the ball with precision and well-timed runs, allowing it to play fluidly on offense. The Spartans utilized the wide areas of the pitch and cut through the Fleetwood defense with accurate crosses, leading to scoring chances.

Wyomissing operated as a single unit and built its offensive attacks quickly, moving up the field with pace. With seven seniors in the starting lineup, the Spartans’ positioning was strong and they continuously put pressure on the Tigers.

“Our chemistry on the field is so good,” senior Hannah Hurleman said.

Wyomissing jumped to a 3-0 lead before scoring for four goals in the final 15 minutes of the first half. Fleetwood pushed up the field midway through the first half in an effort to generate more offense, which allowed the Spartans to generate several quick counterattacks.

“It was an amazing first half,” Hoffman said. “We made a statement right from the start of the game.”

Freshman Sophia Zeppos scored three goals for the Spartans and Hurleman scored two, all of which were in the first half. Junior Cadi Hoke also scored two goals and Izzy Marshall had the game’s opening goal.

“We worked together today, and it showed,” Hoffman said.

For the Tigers, junior Chanel Hercules scored two goals and senior Leilah Sallee scored once. Fleetwood struggled to generate consistent offense until late in the second half.
