Lonestar Girls among DA Winter Showcase Best XI

Dec 15th 2017

TopDrawerSoccer named Abby Allen and Jillian Martinez among the Girls' Development Academy Winter Showcase Best XI for the U16/17 age group.

Defender, Abby Allen "reads the game well and does an excellent job at anticipating when she should step to intercept a pass and when she needs to drop off to cover for the long ball. With a smart soccer mind, Allen looks like she will have a long future in the game."

Midfielder, Jillian Martinez "was the creative star of the Lonestar squad. She made a number of great passes to split the defense. She was also one of the standouts for keeping possession for her team with understanding when to play forward and when to look back at other options."

Other Lonestar U17 DA standouts featured by TopDrawerSoccer at Day 2 Games of the Winter Showcase event include:

Forward, Kyra Reeves "blazing pace got her behind the Fury defense often in the game. She scored three goals in the win over FC Fury."

Defender, Abby Allen "reads the game well. She is good on the ball and made the difference in the win over Fury."

Forward, Yasmin Parkar "scored two really nice goals late in the win over FC Fury."

GK, Catherine Garcia "made a great diving save late in the game against Fury."
