MYSA 14U Gators finish Third!

The Gators finished 5-5-2 with a strong tournament finish. The season started off tough when one of their top players fractured her knee cap in the first minutes of the first game and was lost for the season. From then on the team struggled to work together and become a strong team. This team was very accurate in their shooting and passing which will go a long way in a short tournament. What hurt them dramatically was their lack of speed. Jessica and her teammates are slow but they made up with their intensity. In last weekend’s tournament they lost to the red team in the first game. Tied the second place team due to darkness and on Sunday beat the blue team. This gave them a chance to get a trophy. In the consolation game they had to play the red team again and soundly beat them 2 nothing, with Jess just missing a goal by inches. With the Gators beating the red team place team gave them the third place trophy and a great conclusion to their season. Congratulation to the Gators!
