Tie with #9 CVCA 0-0

The Firestone Lady Falcons had a major milestone tonight in the recent memory of their program.  They tied #9 in Ohio Division 2 Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy 0-0.  CVCA had not been shut out all year.  Goalie Kristen Giaquinto had some great saves, even though Firestone had more scoring opportunities than CVCA did.  The defense of Lynn Barnes, Molly Loar, Reilly Daugherty, and Megan Zanin played stellar in the shutout.  Next home game is Mon, Oct 11 at 5 pm against Coventry at the Copley Road soccer complex.

win City Series over Ellet

The Lady Falcons won the City Series game against Ellet tonight at Ellet 4-0.  Their record is now 5 wins & 6 losses.  Tonight had special significance as a fund raiser for the American Cancer Society "Make Strides Against Breast Cancer."  Even as an away game the attendance from Firestone was probably around 75-100 which is the largest in at least the last 4 years.  Thanks for all the support.

Firestone 7 Canton McKinley 0

Firestone 7, Canton McKinley 0

 Apparently, kicking eight extra points in Firestone's 72-0 football victory over Kenmore Friday night was just the warm-up act as the senior captain for the soccer squad, Alana Gaither, scored two goals and had three assists in this non-league win over the visiting Bulldogs. The Falcons (2-4) got off to a fast start, taking a 5-0 lead in the first half. Sophomore Shannon Ede contributed two goals and one assist, while Megan Zanin, Jayme Bryson and Lindsey Kirk each kicked in one apiece. "The entire team played well," Falcons assistant coach Jeff Woodruff said. "It was a good overall game. The girls played well together as a team."

GlenOak Aug 30

We played a very good, undefeated GlenOak team.  They had had only one goal scored on them prior to our game.  Half time the score was 1-1 with our goal scored by Shannon Ede.  They scored within the first 10 minutes.  Momentum shifted the last part of the 1st half and we controlled the game and scored.  As the 2nd half started we clearly were playing a back and forth game.  With 10 minutes to go they went up 2-1.  They scored two goals in the last 2 minutes.
