What a great tournament for Surfs 2008 girls team!
Started off strong with a 6-1 win against IE Surf. The hot weather didn’t stop them from playing hard and giving it all they had. We finished Saturday with a tough game against Empire SC but they couldn’t hold us down. Our offense and defense were on fire and we ended the day with another win 3-2 with high hopes of getting to the championship game. Sunday morning came early with an 8am game vs Pateadores NB/CM which ended in a 4-1 victory. We made it to the final!
This is the first tournament final this team has ever been in and they were excited to be part of it. They worked hard, played well together, and fought with all their hearts but in the end lost to OC Premiere 3-1. They walked off the field with their heads held high and proud of themselves for all the hard work they put in all weekend. Their most proud moment was being recognized by Coach Amy and receiving their tournament medal. Of course the weekend wouldn’t be complete without a team pizza party so off to Pepz they went!
These girls are already looking forward to their next championship match!
Great job girls!!!
