Inferno Wins On the Road vs Richmond Ivy (4-2)

The Team Looks to Finish the 2024 Season Strong

Determined to win after Tuesday’s disappointing result of a tie, Lancaster Inferno headed to Richmond Virginia on Friday, June 28th. It was the last season game (and last home game) for Richmond Ivy, and the fans numbered almost 6,000 at Richmond’s City Stadium.

Inferno was unintimidated by the crowd and able to maintain focus by taking control of the match. However, with only about 10 minutes in, Maddie Levy (6 goals/3 assists) was taken out with an injury.

At the 17th minute, #16 Kayla Keefer (Ole Miss) was able to break away and score with a beautiful shot. Celebration was short-lived when Richmond retaliated with a goal at the 20th minute. Inferno was unfazed and continued the attack.

#11 Marissa DiGenova (Temple University) was able to get a pass through Ivy’s defenders to #12 Taylor Mentzer (University of North Carolina) who put it in the net for a 2-1 lead going in to halftime.

At the 51st minute Keefer scored with an assist from #8 Carolyn Hinkle (University at Buffalo), then Hinkle scored a goal with an assist from DiGenova in the 67th minute. At 79′ Richmond Ivy scored their second goal of the match.

The score was 4-2 when the whistle blew, bringing Lancaster Inferno’s record to 9-1-1. The team’s final match this Sunday at Charlottesville Blues will determine if the team will qualify as a wild card in the USL W League championship playoffs.
