A big cheer for Ipswich U9 girls as they earned their first win this season! Ground balls and swift passes ruled the day in the midfield as Natalie Elder and Isabella Racho facilitated play for our posse of second grade scorers, Reid Johnson (6), Lia Dillon (3) and Hadley Blaisdell (1). Excellent, aggressive play around the opponent’s goal by Zoe Pincus, Gracyn Cummins and Phoebe Allen resulted in newcomer Phoebe’s first career goal!
