Back to State, Again

We cannot believe that another year of club soccer has gone by. Seems as though we just wrote the blog a month or so ago saying that "The Girls Heads Back to State" for last years season. Looking back at the blog though and it was one year ago today.

This year the girls had a very good season. They ended the regular season with 5 wins, 1 loss and 4 ties. But they took home the championship in the two tournaments they were in.

New this year, the girls played in the Schwans USA Cup. It was a great experience for all. They had a lot of fun and met players from countries all over the world including Sweden, Haiti, Mexico, Costa Rica, Iceland. During our game against Lake Simcoe, Canada, Stephanie had a head on head collision with one of the Canadian players and they both ended up getting stiches. We do have the broadcast video and are in the process of getting it on the blog. Stephanie and Kelsey (the canadian player pictured on the right) are now facebook friends.

The girls went into districts this year the number one seed. They played the Minnesota Thunder Acamedy in Game 1 and with both Julia and Stephanie each scoring a goal, they won 3-0. In game two the girls played Monticello and again Julia and Stephanie each scored a goal and the game ended up going into overtime tied 2-2. Julia, Stephanie and Racquel(Ducky) scored while Dani was able to stop 3 of Monticellos shots and we won 3-2 in the shootout sending the team back to the State Tournament for the fifth year in a row.
