Saturday 27th May 2017 saw our 01 Girls squad plus a couple of guest players started their very long, very hot, and very successful Memorial Day Cup weekend schedule which saw us fire our way into the final.
The girls first game was Saturday morning at Zube Park before having a later game in the early evening at Meyer Park, and saw us stay undefeated with a tie and a win in respective games. This meant that we were sitting in 2nd place, pushing for a place in the final and had to rest and go again on Sunday,
Sunday did not start how we wanted, as we recorded our first loss of the tournament but with other results going our way we found ourselves in the final on Sunday afternoon.
We can honestly say that the phrase "leave everything on the field" was true for all of our players over the 2 days and 4 games. The team battled and fought and against the odds found themselves close to taking the game to extra time but it wasn't to be.
With 4 games in the space of 36 hours, we know that we have a great bunch of athletes. The girls worked harder than ever before and deserved their place in the final. We are so proud of each and every player, and we know that they deserved the day off on Memorial Day.
With our undefeated season, 2nd place in the state and our finals place in the Memorial Day Cup it has capped off a great year for the team.
As a team, the players have developed and grown on and off the field and we are grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great bunch of ladies.
Here's to next season!
