The GRCJ U9 Girls Gold team played a great game against Waza East - U9 Royal with an intense final game resulting in a 1-1 tie. Because the GRCJ girls shut out the other 3 games, the tie resulted in a tournament WIN!
The two games Saturday came with solids wins against the Michigan Tigers (9-0) and the Force U9-Purple (11-0). However the Force team put up a tough defense with the score 0-0 at the half. Sunday’s first game against Birmingham United (BUFC) brought some good competition but the girls managed to pull out a 3-0 win.
With tournament points tied with WAZA and our girls up by 1 goal in score differentials, all that was needed was a draw to retain 1st place. The game was a great back and forth battle with Waza scoring the first goal late in the 1st half, but our girls immediately answered back with a return goal 2 minutes later. The 2nd half was tense with many close shots on goal in both directions but in the end neither team could find the net giving the GRCJ girls the tournament win.
Great job team!!
