Eclipse Select Soccer Club’s Elite ECNL 2016 (U-17) team took fifth place at the 2014-15 Elite Clubs National League Finals near Richmond, Va., capping off another successful campaign for this talented age group.
Eclipse defeated the Dallas Sting 1-0 on Saturday in the tournament’s fifth-place game. Forward Zoe Redei (Highland Park, Ill.) scored the game’s lone goal, converting a first-half penalty kick after she was tackled from behind.
On the defensive end, Dana O’Boye (Plainfield, Ill.) played a big role during the back-and-forth match – particularly during the Sting’s aerial attacks – to keep the Dallas offense at bay, while goalkeeper Angelina LoDolce (Joliet, Ill.) made two critical saves in the second half to preserve the clean sheet.
