The Shockers went to Dublin Ohio this past weekend to compete in the Dublin United Champions Cup. We knew from the beginning that this would be a tough tournament which is what we wanted.
The first game was a tight contest but the Shockers came through from a couple of PKs giving us a 2-0 win to start the day!
Later that day we had another hard game. The score was 1-1 going into the last minute of the game. The Shockers brought the ball up from the far side of the field, all the way down and put in the winning goal with seconds to go! With two wins, we finished the first day on top of our division.
Up bright and early the next day, the Shockers showed no signs of any weariness and controlled the game from start to finish, ending up with a big 6-0 win!
In the Final, we played the same team that we had played second the day before, and just like that game, it was very tight the whole game. At the end of regulation, the score was tied at 0-0 and we went to PKs! We started the PKs off slowly, missing the first two but finished strong making the final 3 which left us still tied at 3-3 at the end of the first five PKs! The next five shooters lined up in what was a sudden death shootout! We made our first and they missed, and we became the Dublin United Champions Cup U15 Champions!
These ladies showed great heart and fought to the end of each game this weekend and the results show it!
