Prep Roundup: St. Charles East girls soccer edges Oswego

Published: Monday, May 5, 2014 10:17 p.m. CST

ST. CHARLES – Kelli Santo Paulo gathered Sophie Jendrzczyk’s free kick and punched it in midway through the second half Monday, the go-ahead score in the St. Charles East girls soccer team’s 2-1 win over Oswego. The other goal for the Saints (11-3-3) came on a Sonia Ost header off Shannon Rasmussen’s corner kick.

East coach Paul Jennison said a bumpier than usual surface at Norris Stadium made it challenging to play a possession-oriented style.

“I thought Oswego was a very solid team and fought us for every ball,” Jennison said. “We definitely had a good game, a good test, and I thought the girls did well being able to mix up the style of play a little bit and be a little bit more direct.”
