And with the third tournament, comes the first victory of the B1 Teams, specifically the girls’ teams in the Florida Extreme Cup. The work is beginning to bear fruit and we are sure that a great future awaits us.
It was time for the next tournament for our young teams of B1 USA as they moved towards Lakewood Ranch, Florida on September 26. There were about 120 teams from all over Florida who attended the tournament last weekend.
“First of all, we want to express our excitement and pride towards all of our teams and especially our U10 and U13 Girls who brought their best game to the tournament and were able to triumph in their respective finals!“
The U10 Girls kept an incredible clean sheet throughout the Florida Extreme Cup. They first played against CSBRS Braden River. They were able to achieve their first win of the tournament by scoring the only goal of the game.
During their second game, the U10 Girls performed even better than the first game as they were completely dominating the opponent.
The girls were able to score 5 goals during the game without conceding one, and despite having scored this phenomenal amount of goals, they kept rushing after the ball until the last minutes of the game that would bring them to the final.
In the final, our U10 Girls only imagined one possible outcome for the game, winning it. They were facing FC Tampa who easily won their 3 games of the weekend and clearly didn’t come to mess around.
But our B1 Girls were terribly determined and managed to snatch the victory from their rivals leaving the final score at 1-0. Congratulation to our U10 Girls for winning the tournament!
