Although the U8 Girls Academy team (Stella, Kelyse, Amira, Sophia, Emily, Kirsten, Matilda and Mercedes) finally went down 5-6 in a tight affair against a U8 INFC team they showed great team spirit, skills and teamwork in reducing what was once a 3 goal deficit.
This is the first year that Bavarians have had a U8 Girls Academy team and with Coach Sean’s guidance, these pioneering girls are already showing great progress in the first few months of what is for all of them bar none, their first season of soccer.
An audacious pull back, turn and shot on goal, many give and go’s, multiple end to end dribbles and multi-pass moves starting at the Bavarian’s goal and culminating in a cross from the sideline to fellow Bavarians waiting to pounce in front of the opposition goal have been but a few of the great plays spectators have witnessed.
Topping it all is the infectious enthusiastic support that the girls give each other whether on the field or from the sideline as they wait their turn to substitute in. Go U8 GIRLS!
