08 Girls Elite Champions at Atlanta Peach Classic

Our 08G Elite team had the chance to face the same opponent that had walked away with this tournament's championship 2 years earlier. Our girls found themselves being runner-ups to RYSA's 08G 2 years ago, when losing a thrilling final (4-5), but this time around the outcome will be different. While participating on the Navy (top) division of this tournament, Our girls earned 3 wins on their way to the final match, against Henry County United Elite (2-1), DDYSC 08 Premier (3-0) and Impact SC Elite on the semi-final match. Playing a very familiar opponent on the final match, our girls were confident and knew what they had to do to walk away with the Champions trophy this time around. The team went up on the score early in the game, and then controlled the game and ensure RYSA would not score one on them. The final score was 1-0. This team is trained by Adrian Juarez and coached by Jeremiah Bivins.
