Wow!  What a weekend of exciting soccer.  Congratulations to Team Pride for becoming Champions with a 1-0 win at the finals match today.  This afternoon’s team of 9 players left everything on the field.  The girls played with so much heart – intercepted, tackled, pressured, fought for every ball, took advantage of every possession, played like a team, and shut down their opponents.  With no subs available, our girls faced a formidable team (lost 3-4 to them yesterday) and played like they wanted to win – all the way to the final whistle.

 

Thank you, everyone, for trekking to Morgan Hill this weekend!  Special thank you to all the guest players who played at the tournament then traveled back north for more soccer at Bladium, Futsal, and/or league games.  You are champions, too!  (I have medals for everyone!).

 

See you on the field soon!  Go Pride!
