The girls played hard. Â Andrea did a few things she rarely has the opportunity to do. Â On one play, she ran the whole field, supporting the striker who had no one else keeping up with her. Â I am not sure what she did for the other play, but I heard the other moms start chattering about Andrea. They excitedly talkedÂ about itÂ for a long time!
Unfortunately, the tournament was a single elimination gameÂ and they lostÂ by one point (0-1), due to a penalty shot. Both teams were so close in abilities, if they played again, they would probably win or tie. Since it was single elimination, it was not an accurate portrayal of who was the best of the four teams competing.
However, the girls playedÂ a great season and they made it to the finals. Â I am proud of them.
