Lady Red Dragons blank Lady Billies, 1-0

Sara Stawitzky scored an unassisted, point-blank goal to give the Maple Grove Lady Red Dragons a 1-0 victory over the Fredonia Lady Hillbillies (7-3) in Friday’s CCAA West League girls soccer matchup.

In the first matchup of the two teams, played earlier this season at Maple Grove, it was the Lady Red Dragons coming away with another gritty 1-0 win.

Brianne Davis played a solid game in net for Maple Grove, making seven saves to earn the shutout.

“Both teams played very well,” Fredonia coach Cathy Cruver said. “These two teams are very evenly matched. It was a hard-fought game. We play similar styles of soccer and it was one of those cases where we knew the first team to score would come away with the win.”

Fredonia’s Alex Zentz had four saves in the loss.
