Congratulations to the U10G National Team's second place finish at the 2016 AYSO National Games, July 10, in West Palm Beach, Florida. The girls weathered 95º heat to play two Soccerfest games and eight tournament games over the course of five days against teams from Hawaii, Florida, Pennsylvania and California. With a 5-2 record, the girls advanced to the final consolation round championship game. The girls’ brilliant teamwork put them in a position to score early, but the shot just missed, bouncing off the left post. The score remained tied 0-0 deep into the 4th quarter until the winning goal found its way into the net, with less than two minutes remaining in the game. The girls left it all on the field and completed their journey by playing their hearts out in an amazing game of phenomenal passing and teamwork.
