U12 Girls win Memorial Day Tournament in Disney

 
What a weekend in Disney!  The U12 Girls began the tournament tieing the Jensen Beach Jaquars in the first game 2-2. That evening they went up against a Georgia team (CFC Lady Chiefs). Eagles had a big win with a score of 4 - 0. On Sunday with temperatures over 100 degrees the Eagles played Shooting Stars from North Florida. As hot as it was our girls stayed cool with at win 6 - 0 which sent them to the semi- finals on Monday morning against the undefeated team East Pasco. It was the toughest game so far with trying to beat out East Pasco's strong defense. With a shot from  midfield over the goalie's head into top left corner, Eagles win 1 -0 .
 
Onto the Finals, how exciting that was against Kendall Hammocks. Very tight game with us leading only for the first 10 minutes of the game. Kendall held us 2-1 for most of the game until we made a play we had been practicng all year for the tie goal. With only minutes left , another beautiful goal was made with great team work to take home the GOLD MEDAL!!!
 
The girls had a great season with taking the Championship in the West Pines Kickoff followed by placing second in FLUGSA league play to being Disney Tournment Champions, all led by Coach John Besley.
