The Fire out-powered both teams on Day 1 with a 3-0 win over FC Virginia (VA) and 3-0 win over Yardley Makefield Soccer (PA-E), prevailing in poor field conditions (rain and wind all day). Day 1 concluded with a combined Fire/Fury team-building event.
On Day 2, the Fire played against a physical team with a 5-0 win over Cleveland FC (OH-N). They commanded the field during the entire game - even in challenging wind conditions (25 mph constant winds). The team moved on to the Semi-Finals game on Sunday afternoon, where they played to a 2-2 tie at the end of regulation time, immediately followed by an exciting PK Shootout. Fire defeated FC Europa 3-2. After the Semi-Finals, the Fire players and families participated in a team Bowling event, followed by a team dinner at our hotel.
On Day 3, the Fire played Maryland United Pre-ECNL, a very big, physical team. The Fire kept the Maryland United girls in check during the entire game. The girls confidently walked out onto the field after halftime and scored 2 goals to secure the championship win with a 2-0 victory.
