The Nevada Wonders, a local high-school-aged soccer team, beat Las Vegas Soccer Academy Red 5-4 en route to a second-place finish at the state tournament.
LVSA took a 1-0 lead, but a goal by Michelle Sandage tied the game at 1. After playing two 15-minute overtime periods, Carson got successful penalty kicks from Alissa Hayes, Bri McCord, Lexi Weaver, Jaime Perez and Sandage to take the lead. The game ended with Wonders goalie Emmy Heller blocking a penalty shot.
The Wonders were missing three players for the championship game and lost 5-0 to a different Las Vegas team.
The U17 girls' team consists of: Shannon Flaherty, Hayes, Weaver, Ericka Arellanos, Perez, Camry Varble, Kassidy Freitas, Heller, Lindsay Hettrick, April Hoogendijk, Jamie King, Katherine Leist, McCord; Gabriele Vega and Sandage.
The team is led by head coach Randy Roser with assistants Cassie Carter, Mike Bernhard, Landon Roser, and Brady Roser.
With the win over LVSA '95 Red, the Wonder's team will now compete at the Far West Regionals, June 18-23 in Phoenix, AZ. But entertaining the dream is expensive. The team is attempting to raise monies in order to ease the burden of traveling expenses as they compete for a spot in the National Championship series.
