The U12 Girls Arsenal played their home opener and had an offensive outburst under the lights April 21 with a 6-3 victory over the Marlboro Cyclones.

After exchanging goals in the first half, Marlboro took a 3-2 lead. Rachael Charsky and Charlotte Garcia controlled the midfield and had a goal each, and Angelina Benitez led the offense in the second half with four goals. Anna Zappola added an assist and Elise Price played a physical, aggressive game in the midfield.

The U12 Girls Arsenal came right back on April 23 and went back and forth with the GAK Banshees after Marcella Hirschman notched her first two goals of the season and Rachael Charsky nailed home a direct free kick from 30 yards out.

Just as its last game went, Arsenal went down 3-2 and then came back as Angelina Benitez scored three second-half goals and Megan Khazem added one more with five minutes to play. Allie Szelag had an assist, Tanya Augenbaugh played solid defense against a speedy GAK team in front of Radha Ghate who recorded her third victory in goal.

The Arsenal stands atop the MOSA National 1 standings and has a rematch with GAK next Friday evening, April 28, at PAL.
