Racine Utd Girls 97/98 Red Team attends CASL Girls Showcase
Over the weekend of November 20-23 the Racine United U17 Girls Red team traveled to Raleigh, North Carolina to compete in the CASL Girls Showcase, one of the largest and most prestigious showcase events in the nation. The girls had a full weekend of activities on and off the fields that began with a light training session on Thursday after landing in Raleigh.
Friday saw the girls take the field for their first match against Triangle Futbol Club (Raleigh-Durham, NC). Goalkeeper Madeline Shea set the tone with an early save on a TFC penalty kick, and two goals from Sarah Johnson to finish off great team attacks gave Racine a deserved 2-1 win to start the tournament. Friday evening the team attended an NCAA tournament game featuring the historic 22-time national champions University of North Carolina Tarheels women's team against the University of Colorado. The Tarheels edged Colorado 1-0 in overtime in a thrilling match.
Saturday afternoon Racine United kicked off their second match of the event against Alpharetta Ambush (Atlanta, GA). A hard fought and physical match ended in a 0-0 draw with only a fingertip save in the dying seconds from the Ambush goalkeeper denying Racine United its second victory of the weekend.
Sunday morning the U17s had their final match against Penn Fusion Soccer Academy (West Chester, PA). A dominant attacking performance from Racine United was thwarted only by an incredible display from the Fusion goalkeeper, making 11 saves as Fusion defeated Racine United 1-0.
Racine United's U17 Girls finished with a very respectable 1-1-1 record against top teams from across the country and put in three very impressive performances in front of dozens of college coaches and scouts. Congratulations girls!
