Coach Mike Beiler’s U18 Premier team had some success August 2nd and 3rd at the Sac United Suntan Classic. After only two weekends of playing together, the team brought home the U18/U19 Championship trophy! Besides battling the hot weather on Saturday the girls had to endure two rounds of penalty kicks in order to secure the First Place prize.
Well fought weekend win, girls!
The team also was the finalist in the Soccer by the Bay tournament August 16th and 17th. Facing the Marin FC team in the finals with limited substitutes, the team held the Marin to just one goal. Quite an accomplishment against a team who had outscored their opponents in bracket play 16-0.
Our girls are warriors – we are ready for league play!
