Region B Cup for U12 Girls Black
Region B Cup for U12 Girls Black – the team posted a 5-0 record through the 1st two rounds of Region’s Cup while scoring 31 goals and giving up 1. They qualified for the final four of Region B with the team playing Ormond Beach Waves this past Saturday (3/16) in the semi finals in Palm Coast, FL. Ann Marie Hawley scored the 1st goal on a blast from 20 yards out to put the SOL up 1-0. Hayden Bunn scored the 2nd goal by knocking in a bouncing ball inside the 6 yard box. Maryssa Kosman scored the 3rd goal of the half with a nice quick turn in the penalty box and shot past the near post. CCSC U12 SOL Black up 3-0 at halftime. Skyler Ricks won a great tackle inside the 6 yard box midway through the 2nd half and scored quickly when the keeper was slow to react. Final was 4-0 SOL and on to the finals on Sunday.
The SOL Black girls played Melbourne Beach Tsunami in the finals on Sunday (3/17). These two teams had met once before in the finals of the Hurricane Classic at Merritt Island, FL this past August with the SOL winning that match 3-1. The game was very evenly matched and quite physical. The Tsunami managed to score off a free kick with 1 minute remaining in the first half to take the lead into half time 0-1 for the SOL. Maryssa Kosman scored 10 minutes into the 2nd half to tie the game with a great left footed shot into the side netting. With 5 minutes remaining and the SOL pressuring the Tsunami’s goal, Kirstin Sciartelli came up from her right back position and nailed a rocket from the top of the box on a weak clearance from the Tsunami. The shot went untouched by the keeper and the SOL were up 2-1. The SOL held onto the victory with a score of 2-1 to win the Region B Championship. They now head to Auburndale for President’s Cup on April 6-7 to play against the other Region winners in the U12 Girls division.
