The U12 Flight OutRageOus team finished their season with Rage by winning the Fremont Tournament of Champions.
The girls played with tremendous heart and remarkable character. They trusted and supported each other, and they gave everything they had. Every player contributed, and they played like a truly great team.
The victory in Fremont came one week after winning the U12 Flight Jamboree and after earning first place in the U12 Flight regular season.
The final match at the Fremont Tournament of Champions ended in dramatic fashion. OutRageOus was competing against the Danville Mustangs, finishing regulation time in a 0 – 0 tie. With 30 seconds remaining in the second overtime session, Izzy Wilbur made an excellent cross to the center. Ellie Flora tapped the ball to Abbey Baer, who sent the ball into the top right corner of the net.
The OutRageOus defense was remarkably strong and did not allow a single goal in the entire tournament. The girls finished the Tournament of Champions with a record of 3 wins, 0 losses, and 1 tie; and they outscored their opponents 11 – 0.
OutRageOus’ team record for 2014, including the regular season, the U12 Flight Jamboree, and the Fremont Tournament of Champions was 13 wins, 2 losses, and 2 ties. Excluding penalty kicks in the Jamboree, they scored 44 goals this season and only allowed 5 against them.
