Quaker City Girls go 11-1 at Capital Cup
by posted 07/28/2015

The Quaker City HS Girls Teams ended their season in grand style going 11-1 at the Capital Cup Tournament in Midlothian, VA July 18 thru 21.  The 2018s started things off early Friday morning with 2 wins and came back on Saturday with another 2 wins to finish 4-0 and at the top of their bracket.  

The 2016s also started on Friday with two games late on Friday. The girls rallied from a 5-2 deficit at halftime to pull out the first game 9-7 and then rolled in their second game.  With the real heat finally arriving on Saturday afternoon (heat index well over 100 degrees), the 2016s played the final two games of the QC careers.  They coasted in the first one but had a real battle in the second falling behind by 3 in the first half.  But as they had done the previous evening, they pushed back and emerged with a 3 goal win to finish 4-0 and at the top of their bracket.

The 2017s arrived to play 3 afternoon games on the turf which much more like a broiler than a lax field.  They really struggled to adjust to the conditions in the first game losing by 3 to a really strong Mass Elite Team.  However, they rebounded with wins in the 2nd and 3rd games of the day.   They came back for a single game on Saturday late morning and rolled to victory bringing them to 3-1 for the tournament and into a tie for the top spot in their bracket.

All in all an excellent showing by the girls and a great way to end the season!
