MANNHEIM, Germany — A last-minute, weather-induced change of venue cost Black Forest Academy its homefield advantage Saturday. Two goals by Mannheim’s Tayeisha Jackson cost it the game.

Jackson’s tallies, along with two assists from Sarah Brierly, proved too much for BFA, which had been scheduled to host the game before the elements intervened, said Mannheim coach John Crockett.

“The game was moved from BFA because their field was covered with snow,” Crockett said by telephone Saturday. “We really had to scramble to get the field ready and cancel our bus. Our administrators did a good job of arranging things.”

The Lady Bison were eager to play because Vilseck had forfeited to them the previous week.

In other girls games of note Saturday:

SHAPE 1, Baumholder 0:At SHAPE, Belgium, Iben Neilsen converted a first-half pass from Kirsten Schunk into the eventual winner. The goal stood up, according to SHAPE coach Shawn Whitehurst, because of the way Emily Brown and Maren Espelid controlled the midfield. The victory left the Lady Spartans (2-0 overall and in II-North) tied with AFNORTH for the league lead. Baumholder fell to 0-2.

AFNORTH 4, Bitburg 1: At Brunssum, Netherlands, the Lady Lions retained their tie with SHAPE when Kylle Wilstead and Jessica Wright each scored twice to beat Bitburg (0-2).

Aviano 5, Milan 1:At Milan, defending European D-II runner-up Aviano got a goal and assist each from Kait Watson, Tiffany Hight and Samantha Cordova in an American Schools in Italy League romp.

Vicenza 1, Naples 0:At Vicenza, Crystal Buhler scored on a first-period shot, and the Cougars’ defense made it stand up. “We had 11 players this week,” said Vicenza coach Adam Ridgley, whose team had to play with nine in the previous week’s 1-0 loss to Aviano.

Hanau 3, Hohenfels 0: At Hanau, Fei Oloi scored twice and assisted Ashley DeStafani on the third goal as the Lady Panthers claimed their second straight III-North home victory. “My defense did a good job,” said Hanau coach Sam Cassou, “and my center-mid, Kate Macagnan played very well.” DeStafani posted an assist for Hanau (2-0 overall and in III-South). Honenfels is 1-1.

Brussels 4, Alconbury 0:At Brussels, Marlena Schlattmann and Christine Exner each scored two unassisted goals as the Lady Brigands, the defending European D-IV champs, opened their III-North campaign.

Wiesbaden, Patch postponed: At Stuttgart, a snow-covered field claimed the first conference game for both teams.
