Wildcats fight to keep streak alive
The Naples Wildcats girls soccer team is living close to the edge in its quest to keep its three-year unbeaten streak alive.
Naples survived a scare from Aviano earlier this season before emerging with a 1-1 tie. Saturday, it was American Overseas School of Rome’s turn.
But the Wildcats showed they had just enough again as Jillian Thurston scored on a corner kick from Gabriella Arce for a 1-0 victory. The Naples defense once again proved tough to score on.
