The U14 Pre
Elite team had a very successful weekend! Although they came up just a little
bit short, losing in the final in overtime, they all played like champions in
all five games in the crazy heat! The team only gave up three goals in five
games! The defense was strong and tough and the offense just never stopped
shooting and kept charging that goal! Off the field the girls enjoyed spending
all their time together hanging out in the hotel and having their meals
together. The Saturday night pizza party is always a delicious tradtion that players and parents (and coach :)) alike enjoy at TWIST. These girls are wonderful for not only how they play on the field but how they act and care about each other off the field.
