November 26th, 2012

Seacoast United Girls U-16 Showcase team had a great weekend at NEWSS (National Elite Women’s Soccer Showcase), winning the Premier White division Championship. Playing in their first Showcase competition of the year under very difficult weather conditions, they played and competed exceptionally well against many of the top teams in the country.
Their first game against Westfield SA FC Premier Fury (NJ) resulted in a 1-0 win. Although the score was close, Seacoast was able to obtain possession of the ball throughout the game. Seacoast went on to play the FC Westchester Elite 97 Premier team (NY) and won 3-0. The next game, Seacoast played Randolph FC Explosion (NJ). It was a very tight, aggressive game but Seacoast counter attacked well and made chances for themselves. Seacoast won 3-0. With 7 goals for and 0 goals against, Seacoast United Girls U-16 Showcase team was ready to advance to the championships. 
Seacoast was prepared for their hardest game yet. It was a very fast-paced, aggressive game against Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres (MN). Seacoast lead 1-0 in the first half. In the second half Shattuck-St. Mary’s Sabres broke through and tied it up. The game then proceeded into 8v8 golden goal overtime. Striker Casey Estey scored within the last minute of the second overtime to win the game.
