U13 Girls NPFC Orange

The NPFC U13 Girls team have been very busy in 2002.  They captured the Northwest Ohio Soccer Championship (Maumee) with an undefeated record - (27) goals for and (1) goal against.  The team continued their winning ways by winning the Troy Soccer Classic with (13) goals for and (1) goal against.  The highlight of this tournament was beating the TSC Nova (Troy) in the title game.  They were ranked 6th in the state at the time.  The team didn't stop there and posted a 9-0-1 record to win the Fall MSYSA Division Championship with (27) goals for and (2) goals against.  Their hard work has continued into the winter indoor session by winning the National Indoor Regional Championship with (26) goals for and (10) goals against. After losing to the Novi Jags (now ranked 6th in the state) in the first game (6-4), the team made some corrections and beat the Jags in the finals (7-1) to take the championship.  We look forward to challenges in the Indoor Nationals and the upcoming Spring season.
