Clipper girls soccer 14-1 ahead of season finale

MOUNT VERNON– The wins keep coming for the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) soccer girls, with Waterloo Columbus and Mount Vernon the latest to fall. The pair of wins boosted the Clippers to 14-1 ahead of the season finale at West Delaware on Wednesday, May 27.
Columbus visited the Clippers on Senior Night, Monday, May 18, and were sunk, 4-1.
CCA coach Matt Harding said the win completed what they are calling the “classic” WaMaC West Championship since the Sailors were in the division until two years ago. Harding noted Columbus had taken the division championship pretty consistently.
Hannah Bormann scored twice for CCA against Columbus, with the first coming off a penalty kick after Megan Hall was clobbered in the box. Bormann’s second goal came in the 31st minute with an assist from Kelsey Hall to give CCA a 2-0 lead.
The Sailors closed out the first half with a goal making it a 2-1 affair. However, Kelsey Hall struck back in the 62nd minute, “…on a beautiful shot from distance,” said Harding.
Bailey Mooney put in the insurance goal with a free kick in the 69th minute.
The next day, the Clippers visited the Mustangs in Mount Vernon and took a 6-0 victory home.
CCA is a host site for all three rounds of postseason competition. The Creek Girls open up on Tuesday, June 2, against Williamsburg at 6 p.m. with the winner playing in the Class 1A Region 6 Semifinal on Friday, June 5, also at 6 p.m., against either Bondurant-Farrar or Knoxville.
The Regional Final is set for Monday, June 8, at 6 p.m.
