Lindbergh beats Renton in big soccer matchup
Despite a quick Renton goal in the first minute of play, the Lindbergh Eagles girls soccer team rallied back to beat the Renton Indians 4-2 Thursday at Renton Memorial Stadium in a matchup of two of the top teams in the Seamount League.
Renton opened the scoring on a quick goal from Asia Brisco, unassisted, in the first minute of play to take a 1-0 lead.
The scored stayed that way until deep into the first half when Lindbergh's Robin McLuen tied the game for Lindbergh with an unassisted goal in the 36th minute. Soon after, in stoppage time, McLuen made a pass to Allison Fernald who put it in the net for a 2-1 Lindbergh lead at the half.
After the intermission, Lindbergh continued to roll, picking up a goal in the 42nd minute from Lindsey Pfluger on an assist from Justine Yarington. Yarington drew Renton goalie Taylor Farris out of the net and made a quick pass to Pfluger, who put it in the back of the net for a 3-1 lead.
In the 58th minute, Yarington got a goal of her own, off an assist from LeAnna Sauceda.
Brisco picked up her second unassisted goal of the game in the 74th minute to make it 4-2, but Renton was unable to get any closer before the final whistle blew.
Both teams are now 5-2 overall.
