The U12G CSC Crash finished out their season winning the 2016 National Bank Summer Kickoff Tournament in Blacksburg VA, May 21 and 22.
They went 2-0-2 with wins over Triangle United Everton and East River Raptors and ties against Salem and Monticello. The team worked extremely hard this season and left everything on the field this weekend!
The Crash finished in second place last month at the Elite Beat the Heat Tournament in Winston-Salem NC. They are coached by Matt Mullens and play in the Blue Ridge Soccer League.
The CSC Blue Bombers won their division in the NRU National Bank Summer Kick-off Tournament played at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg VA, May 21 and 22.
They started off the tournament with a win against the CSC Blue Wave 5-3. Their next game was against Johnson City Futbol JCFC. This was a very physical game but the Bombers played tough and came through with another win 2-1.
On the second day of the tournament the Bombers faced NRU for their first game. This was a tough one as the Bombers came up short with a loss 3-1. Despite the loss the Bombers made in into the finals based on points and faced NRU one final time for the championship game. This was arguably one of the CSC Blue Bombers best games of the season. With a goal scored early by Taylor Allen the Bombers took the lead. Thanks to the strong goalie performance by Hannah Blankenship and strong defensive performance that was the only goal they needed. However, Taylor Allen had one more in her and they clinched the lead 2-0 winning the final game against NRU and winning first place in the tournament.
Each player played a vital role in this win and it would not have been possible without the contribution of each and every girl on the team.
At this time I would like to recognize and congratulate all of the U10 Girls CSC Blue Bombers for their accomplishment:
