Congratulations to our 2003 (U18) Girls team for winning the 2021 Presidents Cup Championship. With the victory, they advance to the Southern Regionals to be played in Decatur, Alabama June 9 thru June 13.
The ladies faced a very tough opponent, Coral Estates Tempo, in the Semi-final game on Saturday. Regulation ended in a 1-1 draw with Ava Politz netting the Raiders lone goal. After neither side was able to produce the game winner in overtime the game went to penalty kicks from the mark. Goalie Olivia Zavala produced 3 saves in the shootout and goals by Victoria Cura and Emily Brenning secured a 2 to 0 PK win.
The final turned out to be a much less dramatic, but no less thrilling affair, as goals by Ava Politz and Athena Skafidis proved to be enough for the Raiders to defeat St Cloud 2 to 0 to win the Cup and advance to Regionals.
A big congratulations to all the players and their families. Go Raiders!!!
