The 04 Edwards girls took second place in the U8 Girls Gold bracket of the Liverpool American FC Legacy Freedom Cup this past weekend in Dallas.
The Gold bracket featured some of the toughest U8 competition in the Dallas Metroplex, including teams from Texas Spirit FC, United Shamrocks, Fever United, Fort Worth FC, Solar Chelsea and Liverpool America. After advancing from their division, the girls posted a 1-0 semi-final win over a very tough Texas Spirit club. The finals paired TSCH Edwards against the highly ranked Fever United 04G Red. Both teams were held scoreless through regulation and two overtime periods. The girls fought hard, but came up just short losing 2-3 when the match went to penalty kicks. Although the girls were disappointed with the loss, they can be very proud of their achievements.
The girls have participated in three tournaments since forming in August 2011. They have two Finalists and a Championship finish to their credit with both losses coming to tough teams from Dallas. The girls also carry a nine game tournament streak where they have not allowed a goal in the field.
