Congrats to our trio of teams that came out victorious in championship matches at the Amherst Memorial Day Tournament (2004 Girls, 2003 Girls and 99 Girls)
The 2004 Girls won a thrilling match against the Hillsboro Heat 04 (NH) girls, coming back from deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 to force overtime knotted at 2-2. The match could not conclude in extra time and was won in penalty kicks.
The 2003 girls fought off Salem YSA U14 (NH) with a goal midway through the second half to seal the victory 2-1 in the Championship. The win came after a tight semifinal match where they scored late vs Merrimack (NH) in a 1-0 win.
The 1999 girls have been bitten by the injury bug this season and were able to persevere with a 1-0 win vs Capital 99 Elite (NH) in the championship match. The 99s played with only 11 girls and no subs in the championship game after suffering a few more injuries in round robin play. Very gutsy performance after a long weekend!
In other playoff games, our 2003 Boys fought its way into the finals after a 5-3 semi win against Center Moriches (ENY) before falling in a tight 3-2 affair with River City (ME). The 2004 Boys lost in their semifinal match vs Derry SC (NH) during penalty kicks in a heartbreaker, while the 99 Boys fell 1-0 in their semifinal as well.
