Despite being in the same conference as the reigning WPSL champions, there is no set team running away with the Heartland Conference. Instead, it’s a close race up top among St. Louis Lions, Kansas City Athletics and Fire & Ice SC.
St. Louis earned a dominant win at the Tony Glavin Soccer Complex on Sunday. Five goals were scored in the dominant display in front of home fans in St. Peters, Missouri.
Mackenzie Rief and Christina Rodriguez each scored two goals. However, Maddie Pokorny scored first goal of the match to get momentum rolling for St. Louis.
That momentum came in handy when goalkeeper Olivia Silverman made a penalty-kick save to preserve a clean sheet. Silverman features at the collegiate level for Saint Louis University.
Fire & Ice SC also helped its standing in the Heartland Conference with a 3-0 victory over the KC Courage on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Kansas City Athletics fought to a scoreless draw against the Des Moines Menace Women.
Make sure to catch the women's last home game of the regular season this Fri Jun 29 6:00pm CDT!
