The most competitive matchup in Saturday’s Aviano-Vicenza girls soccer game was between the Cougar offense and defense.

Both units turned in impeccable performances in a 6-0 shutout of the visiting Saints.

Offensively, Alex Frank and Tatiana Miranda recorded eye-popping numbers. Frank recorded three goals and three assists, while Miranda had two gaols and three assists. Emily Garcia chipped in a goal for the Cougars.

On defense, Katie Claunch and Amanda Coyne anchored a stingy group that shut down an Aviano team coming off a five-goal effort against Florence on May 4. Goalkeeper Rima Gasparini snuffed out all six of the shots the Saints managed.

SHAPE 4, Bitburg 0: Friday at Bitburg, Begona Rodriguez Bravo scored three of the Spartans’ four goals in the shutout victory.

Goalkeeper Mia Harsanji was perfect in goal for SHAPE, making all four of her required saves. Bitburg counterpart Isabella Madamba performed admirably in a much busier afternoon, notching 20 saves from the prolific Spartan offense.

AFNORTH 3, Bitburg 1: Saturday at Bitburg, the Lions scored two second-half goals to break a halftime tie and earn the victory.

Maika Wagner scored two goals and notched an assist for AFNORTH. Goalie Hayle Stoner made five saves for the Lions.

Patch 6, Ansbach 0: Saturday at Ansbach, the Panthers scored three goals in each half in a thorough shutout victory.

Tanner Boyle and Heidi Farrar scored two goals apiece to pace Patch, which finished its regular season at a solid 6-1.

Naples 10, Marymount 1: Saturday at Naples, the three-time defending Division II European champions enjoyed an intimidating final tune-up for Europeans.

Gabriella Arce and Tyler Treat scored three goals apiece for the Wildcats. Naples put the game away early, building a 7-0 lead by the intermission.
