Carrollton, GA—The Georgia Storm G13 girls’ team (U10) traveled to Panama City, FL, this past weekend and competed in the Panama City Beach Classic super-regional tournament against other Georgia, Alabama and Florida teams. The girls went undefeated Saturday, November 4, and Sunday, November 5, bringing home a championship win after four games.
Starting the tournament with a blowout win, Georgia Storm upped their first opponents 8-1 with another winning match of 2-1 to follow which was a sure boost of confidence going into the semi-finals.
The semi-final and final games were against equally matched teams, but the Georgia Storm girls have been trained to attack and counterattack which disrupted the opponents’ rhythm and ability to create scoring opportunities. Coupled with a fast and skilled set of defenders, the rival team could not find themselves in a scoring position leading to a 4-0 win.
Closing out the tournament, Georgia Storm played against Bayside Rush from Gulf Breeze, FL. The Georgia Storm pressed the Bayside Rush defense multiple times but could not score until a breakaway led to the offsetting goal, giving them a 2-1 lead. With the Bayside Rush girls pressing to tie the game and little time left, Georgia Storm would score another goal on a beautiful one-two crosser from the right wing that was volleyed into the net. Georgia Storm would cap it off with one more breakaway goal, securing its 4-1 victory for the championship.
