The SJEB U13 Girls NPL kicked off their 2014/15 season at the Marlton Summer Classic in fine style this past weekend, winning the premier flight with a 4-0 record, with 17 goals for and only 4 against.
The new look squad features Six new signings in Brooke Castellano, Colleen Simpson, Rachel Simpson, Claire Mullholand, Jordyn Price and Hanna Keane adding much needed pace and ball winning capabilites.
After a 6 week summer break the Malrton tournament was a good chance for the team to gel together. It didnt take long for them to assert their dominance on the opposition with the girls combining well all over the field with quick short passes.
Playing in a three team bracket the opening game was a 2-0 win over Medford Strikers, followed by a 5-1 win over Marlton Storm. On Sunday the schedule was repeated and the girls posted a 5-2 win over Medford and a 5-1 win over Marlton.
The girls are to be commended on their commitment to playing progressive, posession style soccer, some of the goals were the result of outstanding teamwork. Some of the soccer played drew complementary comments from referees, spectators and field marshalls.
Their next challenge will be the Spirit Utd tournament in Downingtown, PA.
