The BEC Celtics win the top division CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY at the 2011 MANHATTAN KICKOFF CLASSIC! In the 4 games including the Final, the U12G had “0″ Goals Against, earning 4 consecutive “shut-outs” earning victories over BEACHSIDE OF CT, EAST MEADOW SC STARS 98, FC SOMERS CYCLONES, and PAGS-SOUTH HAMPTON SA CRUSH in the final.
Coaches Meredith Rooney & Glenn Livingstone were extremely pleased by everyone on the roster. The team has been diligently training 3 x a week since December. After 2 successful Indoor performances playing up in age, the tournament win at MANHATTAN KICKOFF is the best reward the girls could have earned after all their hard work; and an even better way to kickoff the U12G Spring Season.
Ball movement was excellent. Player movement on and off the ball by all the players was terrific. Above all, the coaches were extremely pleased by their will to compete in tough conditions at Tibbets Park in Yonkers thru the rain and cold. 11 Goals were scored over 4 Shut-Out games, by 7 different players. The shut out performance was underscored by an excellent performance by NJ Stallions’ Goalie, Meghan Marhan. Congratulations girls! Good luck this Spring!
