The GU14 White played in Kick for Hope. The vision of Kick for Hope is to provide youth with an opportunity to play hard and give big for the children of Africa. All tournament proceeds go to children in Africa, whose lives are ravaged by poverty and disease. The GU14 were happy to participate in such a great tourney. They had an awesome weekend of soccer and at the same time helped those in need. Coach Kiko Medina had this to say about the GU14, “We played very well this weekend, but we couldn’t finish our chances. The girls are really starting to understand the new system and they are having fun playing.”
The team tied their first game 0-0 vs Surf Premier. The GU14 dominated possession and had a lot of chances, but unfortunately missed 3 breakaways. The team lost the second game 1-0 vs Surf GU13 Premier. It was an even game, but a mistake out of the back resulted in a scoring opportunity. The girls did win their last game 2-1 vs SD United Premier. It was first time the team had beaten SD United in 2 years. The girls were extremely happy about the win. Both goals were scored by Mary Reilly. Unfortunately the GU14 did not advance to the finals since they needed to win the game vs SD United by 2 goals.
The team will be playing in the Slammers Futbol Classic next. Coach Medina made the following comment on the upcoming tourney, “This will definitely be a challenging tournament and I expect the girls to play well. There is not doubt that they will continue to improve on the new system. If we make it out of bracket, that would be a very good showing for us. My main concern is that we play well and improve on every game we play.”
