The FU11’s went away to Stowe, Vermont this weekend for the Nordic Cup. After a first great win 3-0 vs a strong Massachusetts team, they fell 5-0 to a very strong New York team.
Exhausted , short benched with two subs and high temperatures , they played their third game and dominated the play but couldn’t finish enough . Thinking they fell short, they were on their way home when the organizers confirmed they made it to the finals .
Rushing back to play the finals, not everyone was able to come back. With no subs, this group defied the odds , and played their best game of the year with 0 subs, at half time down 1-0, their keeper went off with a mild concussion. Playing a well organized , tactically flawless low block, adapted extremely well to a challenge the coach had given them, the other team who had beaten them 5-0 had no answers this time. playing to a draw, they finally fell in extra time . They came home with the silver medal 🥈 and the organizers voted that game the best game of the tournament . #proudcoach#FU11Hawks#SilverMedaliists #Courage
