Banner day for Stars 'n Stripes as we rocked it today!
Boys 19 got us rolling as they played best game on tour and won 4-1. Controlled the game and simply dissected our Norwegian opponents. Chase and Tristan each had a great goal in a total team effort.
Girls 17 up next and also destroyed its Norwegian opponent 5-0 with goals from Elizabeth, Zoe, Christina, and Katelyn with 2. Girls are hitting their stride.
Girls 16 and Boys 17 play at same time on fields side by side and boys tied 0-0 as they could not score but no such problems with the girls as they won 5-0 with 2 goals from Zoe, 2 from Simone our Danish guest player, and 1 from Alyssa. Great atmosphere with both teams playing at same time and loads of fun.
Lunch and some rest and then boys 19 play a physical Norwegian team and were down 1-0 for most of the game before Adam Witte tied it up and Eddie scored on a late free kick as we win 2-1.
Mad rush to the girls 16 game as they play another undefeated team to decide the group winner and we win 1-0 on a scrappy goal from Nicolette.
So all in all a great day as all 4 teams have qualified for the A-final which is an awesome feat. Going undefeated on the Wednesday of a European cup is an awesome accomplishment.
Meals are ok, not great, but still ok and its hot. Mid 90s easily and we have some knocks to sort out but kids are all great.
They had their phones tonight and the woodpeckers were busy texting, posting pics, calling family, etc. We have some great kids on this tour and they are really bonding together, great fun.
Huge day tomorrow as we enter the win or go home phase so wish us luck.
