Tournament Champs!!!

RSC-SCV G2006 White start the year with a bang, winning the Championship at the prestigious 2019 Vegas Cup in Las Vegas!

The girls, under the brilliant coaching of Luty Neveleff, traveled to Las Vegas last weekend in preparation for the upcoming State Cup.

The tournament was a roller coaster ride, that saw the girls going through some incredible games to get to the final game on Monday.

The weekend started with a 0-0 tie against Real Salt Lake Arizona on Saturday. After a 5-2 win vs. Legends FC, the girls seemed destined to win the group and advance to the semifinal. On Sunday afternoon, RSC dominated a FC Long Beach team, but wasted a 2-0 lead and ended with a 2-2 tie, which saw them ending their group in second place.

Fortunately the girls were able to advance to the semifinal on a wild card. On Monday morning, the girls played Redlands. After a hard fought 1-1 tie, the girls prevailed in a penalty kick shootout (final score 5-4).

In the final the girls played Ajax FC Utah. This time the girls played their best soccer and controlled the game, ending up with a 2-0 win and the Championship Trophy!

You can see the names of the team members below.

Well done, girls! We are proud of you!
