MD Rush 2008 and 2011 Girls WIn August Cup!

Annapolis, MD. August 26, 2019.  The Maryland Rush 2008 and 2011 girls teams each won their divisions in the 2019 August Cup on August 24-25, 2019.

The 2008 Rush girls played in a 5-team bracket and opened the weekend with a 2-1 victory over Loudon White 08G early Saturday.  They returned just a few hours later to face a fresh Golden Ball FC 08 team.  The Rush girls scored in the opening minutes to take a 1-0 lead and held that lead thru halftime.  Early in the second half Golden Ball struck twice to lead 2-1.  With 10 minutes left in the game Laura Ingram drove a left-footed shot into the upper corner to even the score at 2-2. A few minutes later, the rush girls received a direct kick outside the Golden Ball penalty area.  Taking the kick with her right foot, Ingram again drove her shot to the upper corner to take a 3-2 lead.  Golden Ball then rallied to get a late goal to tie the game at 3-3.  On Sunday, the 08 Rush girls took control of their own destiny and posted 2-0 and 3-0 wins over Cecil Pride and DC Stoddard to bring home the championship.

The 2011 Rush girls opened their 2019-2020 campaign on Saturday with a hard-fought 1-2 loss to BRYC Elite. They bounced back from the lass later on Saturday with a 5-1 win over Loudon White.  The 2011 Rush girls opened play on Sunday morning with an 8-0 win over BRYC Blue to earn a rematch with BRYC Elite in the championship game.   ?In the championship game the 2001 Rush girls opened strong, controlling play on BRYC's end in the first half and taking a 1-0 lead at the half.  The teams fought hard through the second half and BRYC Elite tallied a late goal to tie the game.  After regulation the game went directly to PKs.  In the shootout, each team's first attempt was saved by the keeper.  BRYC Elite's second shot went wide left, and Gianna put the Rush girls in the lead with  a rocket into the back of the net.  In the third round, Rush rookie goalkeeper Lucy again blocked the BRYC shot. On Rush's turn, Emma hit another rocket to the corner to take a 2-0 lead on PK's.  In the fourth round, Lucy secured the championship with yet another PK save.

Congratulations to the 2008 and 2011 Rush girls on bringing home the championships!
