New Season – New Name

With a new season comes a new name for the Loudoun Magic – now the Loudoun Soccer 95G White. The team’s new name is part of Loudoun Soccer’s effort to better unite all the club’s teams under one umbrella. We wish our sister Red, Black, and Silver teams best of luck with their upcoming seasons.

White started their preseason with a solid 2-1 showing at the Dulles National Preseason Tournament in Herndon. The girls defeated the Sterling Tigers and Great Falls Courage before losing to the eventual tournament champion BRYC Axiom. Several of the girls had excellent tournaments. Goalkeepers Cate Coughter and Kylie Fleming finished the tournament unscored upon. Cate and newcomer Katie Alexander had the first goals as members of our team. Carly Melkus joined us as a guest player and did a nice job as a keeper and defender.

It would’ve been nice to get into the finals, but the girls played hard, and did well for their first games together. We got a good idea of what we need to work on, and we’re ready to work hard to have a great ODSL season.
