Rush 11G SAC Columbus Day Champions

Oct. 11, 2021. Annapolis, MD.  The Maryland Rush Annapolis 2011 girls were crowned champions in top U11 girls division in the 2021 SAC Columbus Day Tournament.  The Rush girls opened the tournament Friday night with an impressive 3-1 win of EDP Division 1 competitor Player Progression Academy (PPA).  After going behind 0-1 in the first half, the Rush equalized with a goal from Gianna.  Early in the second half, the Rush pulled ahead with a long strike from Julia that sailed over the head of the opposing keeper and into the back of the next.  The Rush closed out the scoring with a late second goal from Gianna off an assist from Morgan.

The Rush girls next survived a preliminary match on Saturday against the Pasadena Wolfpack.  After leading 1-0 and 2-1, the Rush had to settle for a tie after a late penalty kick was saved by the Wolfpack keeper.  On Sunday morning, the Rush suffered a setback against the Coppermine girls, but nevertheless advanced to the championship game.

The championship game, again against the Wolfpack,  proved to be a defensive battle with the stingy defenses of both teams denying any goals.  Tied 0-0 at the end of regulation, the game advanced to penalty kicks with the Rush taking the first kick.  After both teams missed their first PK, Lucy opened the scoring with a strike just inside the left post and out of reach of the Wolpack keeper. The Wolfpack's second PK sailed over the crossbar, leaving the Rush up 1-0.  Anna then doubled the Rush's lead to 2-0, driving the ball into the back of the net just inside the right post. The next PK from each team went wide to the left, leaving the Rush up 2-0 with the Wolfpack having two kicks remaining and the Rush one.  Rush keeper Sienna then s made a save on the Wolfpack's fourth kick to secure the win.

The championship continues an extraordinary fall season for the Rush 2011 girls, who were crowned champions of the 2021 August Cup back in August, were finalists in the OBGC Capital Cup over Labor Day Weekend, and currently are 5-0-0 in EDP league play.
