Most games a bit one-sided as regular season ends
Largely lopsided outcomes were the theme of the final weekend of DODEA-Europe girls soccer regular-season play.
Every DODEA-Europe team will travel to the Kaiserslautern Military Community for the Division I, II and III tournaments, which open May 21 and conclude with three divisional championship matches May 24 at Kaiserslautern High School.
Spangdahlem 5, Baumholder 1: Saturday at Spangdahlem, a pair of two-goal scorers paced the Sentinels to a home-field victory.
Ava Bohn and Amanda Zubowicz scored two goals apiece for Spangdahlem, a contender in the muddled Division II championship scene.
Alconbury 4, Brussels 0: Saturday at Brussels, the defending small-school champions confirmed their status as favorites to extend their reign.
Isabel Black scored three goals to pace the Dragons to the blowout victory of one of their most persistent divisional adversaries.
Alconbury won all three of their Division III games this spring, including two over Brussels.
Stuttgart 2, SHAPE 0: Saturday at Mons, Belgium, the Spartans made the favored Panthers work for a victory.
The Panthers pushed through a goal in each half, finally getting by stalwart SHAPE goalie Katherine Kacher, who recorded 16 saves. Emily Smith and Natalie Eddy scored a goal apiece.
Stuttgart, which took a shootout loss to Wiesbaden in last year’s Division I title game, completed an undefeated season with the win. The Panthers tied Ramstein on April 14 in their only non-victory of the spring.
Rota 4, Sigonella 0: Saturday at Sigonella, the Admirals made their long journey to Sicily count with a thorough shutout win.
Emma Hook scored three goals to pace the visitors.
The Admirals rank highly among contenders for the Division II crown, while Sigonella will take its shot at the Division III title.
