Georgia Express FC

U9 Girls Hold Down the Fort!


The Georgia Express U9 Girls ended the year with a bang, playing some special soccer and taking home Champions medals! 

The U9 Girls Lazio division was divided into two groups, with Georgia Express facing teams from Liberty SC, Cherokee Impact, and DDY Lady Wolves.  The girls kept their tight shape in defense, giving up four goals in the three games to make the finals against the dominant team in the other group, Alliance SC.  Alliance cut through their group, outscoring their opponents 18-2 to set up an afternoon finale.

The teams were evenly matched, with Alliance having much of the ball in the first half but unable to finish effectively in the last third.  Georgia Express had some stellar goals, and the half ended with the girls up 4-0.  Coach Craig had two messages at halftime:  win the second half and have fun!  The girls answered the call, rattling off four goals to one and finishing the game with an 8-1 victory.  Special thanks to Coach Jamie for splitting coaching duties with Coach Craig during the weekend.  Congrats to this special group of young ladies!
