2005 Girls Finish Near the Top of the Table this Fall!

By MMikkelsen 12/05/2016, 10:00pm CST

Strong Fall for 2005 Girls

Congratulations to the 2005 girls team for finishing 3rd in a very competitive C Division of the IWSL with a 6-4 record! (In fact, just a single point separated the top three teams.) 

The team's development and accomplishments throughout 2016 have been strong: a 2nd place finish this past Spring in the D division, followed by a 2nd place preseason finish at Schaumburg SoccerFest, and then a close 3rd place this Fall campaign. The girls' growth in possession and attacking has been solid, and our defense (anchored by Katie, Sydnie, Kaia, and Veronica) continues to play exceptionally well.

In the attack, the following players found the back of the net this Fall: Mia (7 goals), Emma S (3), Lola (2), Molly (1), Sydnie (1), Veronica (1), and Elsa (1). And these players provided assists: Sydnie (3), Emma S (2), Molly (2), Mia (2), Lola (1), Kaia (1), Emma K (1), and Sofia (1).

Go Powerstrikers!
