The WPSL Cleveland Ambassadors remained red hot today with a thrilling 1-0 victory over Cincinnati Sirens FC in Akron at Saint Vincent Saint Mary. The win, their second in two days, pushed their regular season record to 5-1-1. The ladies from the shores of Lake Erie are a real threat to take home the league title.
They are currently nipping at the heels of Central Conference, Great Lakes division leader, Motor City FC who sits at 4-0-1. Cleveland has been on a roll thanks to a total team effort, we know about their passing skills, but today it was total control on both sides of the pitch that brought home the win.
Their defense continued to be smothering as the Ambassadors held the ball for 68% of the possession time. They out shot the Sirens 12-4 in a physical game that saw them commit 8 fouls while the Sirens FC committed 5.
The lone goal of the match came at the 25 minute mark when Halle Stelbasky found the back of the net. For Halle, it was her 9th goal in 8 games as she has been on an absolute tear and has put the rest of the league on high alert.
The Ambassadors are back at it again June 30, on the road in Cincinnati against these Sirens FC. You can next catch them at home on July 5th as they host Steel City FC at Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy.
