RAGE U-19 Girls- Bronze -FIRST PLACE TROPHY
Rick Hitch Classic in ROSEVILLE, CA
Rage 95 Orange Sweep Roseville tournament in a round-robin tournament this weekend. Battling against adversity of Senioritis and Homecoming Events, they played the two Saturday games with only enough players to field a team. Late in the first game Kylie Cardozo outwitted the keeper for a very simple 1 v 1 goal.
Game two, with only 11 players , the day heated up to 90 degrees, Rage kept their cool and taunted the opponent with shot after shot and successfully defended every counter attack of a team who had scored 29 goals, until the opponent allowed a single goal. Ramped up and still on the attack, Sierra Downum dribbled through three defenders, powering off a shot from the right side, which quickly rang out the back of the net with a big Whoosh!. Final 2-0.
Sunday morning game with the strength of 13, we rang in another sweet victory with a 2-1 win, allowing the only goal against for the tournament. Hats off to our determined defense and Keeper Danielle Dieke who played every minute of all 4 games. As we approached the final challenge, we took the initiative to clinch the tournament with an early goal by Tori Larsen. Struggling through the final minutes of our endless weekend, they hung on. The win would put our point total out of reach for games to be played later that day. Unreachable, we celebrated Victory and an early departure with ONE BIG TROPHY and medals for all. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SUCCESS!
