Saturday Bake Sale

The bake sale is still on for this Sat. April 5th at the Sterling Walmart. We have adjusted the times due to our 10am game. We will begin our bake sale at 1pm and end around 5pm. Due to space restrictions, we need to divide the girls into 2 two hour shifts--1-3pm and 3-5pm.

Please contact Peggy Bokulic or Karen Alexander to let them know when you can supply sales people for the event.

Thanks to Peggy & Karen for keeping on top of this event!

Spring '08 -- Off and Running

95G White competed in the FPYC Liberty Cup to warm up for the Spring ODSL Season. Although the girls didn't get to the finals, we were able to take several positives out of the event.

First, the team had a positive goal differential, scoring 9 and giving up only 5. We've used our limited practice time to work on our pressure/cover/balance defensively, and it showed. The girls gave up more than one goal in only one game during the tournament. Second, the team learned a lot about playing under adversity as two players went down with injuries during day 1 and were unavailable during day 2. Down two players, the girls played the FPYC Strikers to a 1-0 loss, then defeated the CYA Fuego 2-1 in the afternoon.

Erin Windland led the team in goals, closely followed by Annie Bokulic. Both girls earned Captain's bands for next week's ODSL opening game, and both played some of the best soccer in their travel careers.

Even though we missed the finals, I'm very proud of the girls and the way they handled the injuries, poor fields, and crappy weather. We're looking forward to taking this weekend's momentum into our ODSL opener on Saturday, and we're looking forward to getting our injured kids back in one piece.
