U13 & U14 Girls Teams as NSC Fall Cup Champions 2022

Congrats to both our U13 & U14 Girls teams for being NSC Fall Cup Champions 2022!

Congrats to both our U13 and U14 girls teams for bringing home the Championship in their respective divisions in the NSC Fall Cup in Blaine on Sept 17 & 18. Both teams won every game in the tournament and did not allow any goals. Tremendous effort by all players.

07 Girls Elite Team finish tied for 2nd place in Bracket play at 2022 US Club Midwest Regionals.

We finished the preliminary round with a 1-0-2 record scoring 5 Goals and giving up 2 and tied with St. Louis Scott Gallagher ECNL at 5 pts each. Unfortunately, we lost out to a tie breaker scenario by 1 point to them, so they moved on into the Semi-Finals.  Tough way to lose when you don't play each other. We went into this tournament with just 12 players due to injuries and other conflicts, but that did not deter our team from competing against some of the top teams in the Region. Well done Girls...
