The McLean Real Gold girls team were awarded their first trophy of the new year by winning their U13 division of the Arlington Invitational tournament last weekend.
The Real Gold, which previously finished as 2nd place finalists in last year’s tournament, competed against local teams from Arlington, Lee Mount Vernon and Springfield VA, as well as one from Damascus, MD. The MYS team exhibited some attractive play throughout the weekend, looking to combine individual technical skills with fluid passing and movement off the ball, and was able to finish the tournament undefeated by winning all four of their games.
The Real Gold will look to finish the winter offseason in strong fashion as they play in the semi-final of their winter indoor championship at the N-Zone this weekend.
This team also looks to build good sportsmanship along with good technical skills, and the girls were recently awarded the WAGS sportsmanship award for the Fall 2012 season as well.
