The Robins put forth another awesome effort this afternoon, defeating Minneapolis 7-3 to move to 3-0 on the season. Today, it was a hot start that propelled the Robins to victory, as they found the back of the net often in the first half and led 5-1 at halftime. Jayda Johnson scored a goal on a long direct kick 5 minutes into the game and later added an assist to go along with her usual fantastic defense. She almost single handedly held Minneapolis to just 6 shots on goal in the first half by contstantly attacking the ball and clearing the defensive zone. Along with Jayda, Abbi Lashuay also was extremely solid in the defensive zone and added 2 goals and an assist of her own. Jose Leon Estrada scored 3 goals while Nick Johnson added a goal, Jo’Vonna Shepherd added an assist and Noah Mittendorff added 2 assists. Several players took turns playing in a wheelchair to provide defensive assistance to goalkeeper Josh Reis, including Micah Bomgardner, Junior Dockter, Nick Johnson, Jo’Vonna Shepherd and Jeremiah Vaughn. Reis finished the game with 18 saves. The Robins are back at it again tomorrow with a game at St. Paul Humboldt.
