St. Ursula upsets No. 1 Fairfield in girls soccer

Hambleton's header the winner in 1-0 game

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A goal by Katie Hambleton six minutes into the game was the difference as St. Ursula upset No.1 ranked Fairfield 1-0 in girls soccer Saturday at St. Ursula.

        The goal was set up by Jenna Owens' corner kick that Hambleton headed into the net. Emily Bohart turned aside five Fairfield shots to record the shutout.

        “Katie Ireland saved the game for us,” St. Ursula coach Steve Dorr said. “The ball was in front of the net and Katie came over and cleared it with about seven minutes remaining.”

        The loss was Fairfield's first while St. Ursula improved to 4-0-2.

        • Goals by Katie Falconi, Sally Boyce and Lauren Russell catapulted Summit Country Day to its seventh consecutive victory, a 3-2 triumph over Badin.

        “We beat Indian Hill last Saturday for the first time and Badin today for the first time,” first-year Summit coach Mary Jean Gleason said. “This is the best start ever for the girls.”

        During the past five seasons, the Summit boys team has been ranked No.1 or No.2 in Division II while the girls have struggled to reach the top 10.

        “We have very strong seniors with eight starting,” said Gleason, a sweeper for the University of Kentucky. “The leadership is phenomenal.”

        • A goal by Alex Tucker with 25 minutes remaining, gave Deer Park a 1-0 victory over New Richmond, the No.10 ranked team in The Enquirer's Division II poll.

        Katie Martin assisted on the goal with goalie Courtney Howard turning aside 16 shots to record the shutout.
