The 01 girls Red team competed in North Texas’ President’s Cup this past weekend against some pretty fierce competition and with some very wet conditions. The girls beat out Texas Spirit 4-0, Arlington Galaxy 4-0, Elite FC 3-0 and tied Lake Highlands first place D3 team 0-0. The shut outs and tie earned our girls a spot in the finals to compete once again against FC Dallas for the opportunity to play in the Regionals in Louisiana this June.
In the finals, 01 Red scored 1 goal against FC Dallas within the first 10 minutes of the game. FC Dallas could not compete with the speed and determination of our offense and midfield, nor could they get past the beast mode exhibited by our defense that carried throughout the game. In the last 2 minutes of the game, FC Dallas scored on a free kick sending the very heated match into overtime.
Our 01 Red girls came out determined to represent their club and their team at Regionals by scoring two goals within the first 5 minutes of the 20 minutes of overtime. FC Dallas tried again and again, but our Red girls came together to prove the strength, speed, complete and total teamwork they exhibit, both on and off the fields, could not be beaten and earned the girls a 3-1 win.
