The girls started out the Gator Showcase with a tough bracket and early morning game against Lakeland FC. The team went down 2-0, but never gave up, coming back in the second half to win 5-3. Elite fought through another tough game that afternoon, against South Brevard, holding on to a strong 1-0 victory. On Sunday the girls came out and played a strong passing game, winning 3-1 against West Pasco. The Elite girls were playing exceptional soccer and were prepared for the final game early Monday morning, against the home tournament team GSA 02/03 Blue of Gainesville, who had previously beat them last season. Despite the 30 degree weather and the field being completely covered with frost, the girls came out strong from the start in the final game and went up 5-0 on GSA. The girls played a beautiful passing game, with outstanding finishes, and an exceptional strong defense, and finished the game with a 5-2 Championship! It was a strong weekend from every player on the team.
This follows the team’s win in Savannah in January. We look forward to watching them continue to develop.
