Continuing our usual theme of being undersized and young compared to our competition, the girls proudly showed their skills in competing against Canlubang Don Bosco, San JoseVillage and Los Banos Football Club. Despite the heat and the delays, the girls showed tremendous spirit in capturing the title and earned many positive remarks from the organizers and referees. AM showed very strong instincts in goal. She was strongly supported by Rica in Central Defense who managed to thwart many attacks despite getting kicked constantly. Cariza provided an offensive threat while tracking back often to support the defense earning a well deserved goal against Los Banos. When asked later if she wanted an ice cream as a reward for her efforts she remarked, “Not unless everyone else gets also, we are a team and we win as a team.” Truly inspiring.

Thank you to Santa Rosa Football Club for organizing the tournament.
