The Dublin School girls soccer team met Stoneleigh Burnham School for the RVAL Championships this Sunday. It was a rematch of last year's final, and another installment in a long running rivalry between these two teams. Dublin dominated the first half with an early goal on a penalty kick by Luna. A second goal followed after an incredible pass across the box from Luna was redirected by Liza’s foot mid air. The second half started with another spectacular goal from Luna who made a Beckham-esque shot to the top right corner 12 minutes in.
