Deltona YSC 99 United Elite Girls Team caps off the season's opening weekend with a 3-3 tie against CNLFC LAKELAND FC 99 SHOWCASE; giving the club's first FSPL team, a great start in what is guaranteed to be a tough season against worthy opponents.
In what is best described as a back and forth game, with Deltona YSC 99 United Elite Girls Team being down twice, in spite of several saves by goalkeeper Brooke Walden; Deltona midfielder Bianca Meraz strikes a free kick that Lakeland's goalkeeper couldn't handle, and which was finished off by midfielder Pamela Santiago scoring the first goal for the DYSC Elite team, tying the game 1-1.
Deltona took the lead when newcomer midfielders Ivy Grace Morgan and Nayarith Hurley assisted newcomer Mackenzie Flanagan who made a beautiful strike from the left for an unsaveable goal that gave the Deltona girls a 2-1 lead. That lead was short-lived when DYSC allowed two quick goals, one of which resulted from a penalty kick, putting the Deltona team at a 3-2 disadvantage.
As the game neared the end, Midfielder Bianca Meraz served a corner kick in that rattled around the box and midfielder Nayarith Hurley finished the game bringing home the last goal with less than a minute left, closing the Deltona YSC 99 United Elite Girls Team first weekend in the FSPL with a tie 3-3 against CNLFC LAKELAND FC 99 SHOWCASE.
