5 games in 4 days...

McKenna's Rampage soccer team traveled to Cedar City to compete in the Utah Summer Games. The team went 2 years ago and left with all three games in complete shut out. We didn't score a single goal the entire tournament. This year was a far different story. Our girls played the most amazing games and fought against some of the hardest teams we have ever played against. Our first game was the night we arrived against the Spitfire, our long time rivals. We were shut out 1-0. These girls fought back in their second game the next day against the Sharks to a 1-1 tie. Later that day we played the Bombers who we shut out 2-0 for a good end to a tough double header. That moved us to the Semi-final round where we played Dixie Dragons and won 1-0. This was the most emotional game for all of us because the winner of this game got to play in the Gold Medal round the following morning. After this win there were no dry eyes in the house! The next morning, at 8 am on a windy Saturday morning, we entered the Gold Medal round against none other than.....Spitfire. All things considered, they played like the champions we always knew they could be. We were beat 3-0 and still came out the winners in the long run. Our team won the Silver Medal in the U-12 girls division, but in the hearts of everyone who saw how far they had come, they were the champions!
