With the U11 Girls and the U14 Girls Tournament Champions, and the U13 and U15 Girls Teams Tournament Finalist, it certainly was a great weekend for the Girls’ Cobra Teams playing in the 2014 CASA Indoor Winter Tournament!
The teams played 16 games, winning 13, drawing one, and losing two. The girls scored 61 goals and conceded only 13. The keepers, Ella, Lizzie, Kayla, and Mackenzie recorded five clean sheets between them. We had one Hat-Trick from Mary F. for the U11’s. Izzie G. and Mary F both had three Braces each, Rosy R. had two Braces, and Emily, Zoe, Nicola and Gianna all had a Brace each.
The U11 Girls have now won the last three tournaments they have played in and are certainly becoming a force to be reckoned with. They are an exciting team to watch, a pleasure to train, and they just love to win! They are a dynamic group of warriors who fight for every possession, and attack with an all out desire to score. They just quite simply love being Champions!
The U13’s played in the toughest of all the groups and they played extremely well in every game. They lost in the Championship Game 3-2 and they certainly matched the eventual winners play for play. This is an excellent team who strive to play at the highest level and they were a tad unlucky not to be the Champions once again.
The U14’s won their second consecutive tournament and fully deserved to be the Champions. They won all their preliminary games with confidence, and they had to battle hard to win the Championship Game which they did with a 2-1 victory. The winning goal by Allison S. was an absolute cracker and a worthy championship game winning goal.
The U15’s played tremendously well all through the tournament and I had every confidence they would go on and win the Final. However, it was not to be the case and they ended up losing 3-2 in the Final. They went 3-0 after around five minutes from the start of play; however, the girls made a spirited comeback only to fall short. The team has grown incredibly over the winter months and I truly wished they could have pulled off what would have been their first Championship Win.
