The girls spent a lot of time together when they were not out on the fields. They played in the ocean, swam in the pools and had dinner together as a team Saturday night. Lots of team bonding went on, and as parents we could see the affect that it had on the team.
Saturday the girls split their two games. They beat the first team 8-0 and lost the second game 6-0. On Saturday they looked much like they had all season, playing well in one game and not so much in the second. But, Sunday, they came out with team spirit and a won't give up attitude.
Their first game on Sunday was against a regionally-ranked U-10 girls team. Our girls scored 3 goals in the first half and then let them back in during the second half to tie. In overtime, Mary scored her fourth goal of the tournament to put us ahead and on into the finals.
The final game was against the team that had beaten us 6-0. Even after playing overtime in the first game and having a short break, and the 90-degree temps the girls still gave it everything they had. The girls lost that game 2-1, but left everything they had out on the field.
We were so proud of what they did this weekend.
Go AC Milan!!Peace,
