00 Girls Red Stuns San Tan for Title

Girls Knock off two-time state champ

Victory is always great and sweet but when it comes against the two-team defending state champions it’s even better.

The 00 Girls Red defeated San Tan on penalty kicks to win the Desert Elite Tournament in Phoenix. Madison Hargis’ kick - TSA’s seventh consecutive successful shot - was the difference in the win. But it was a team effort as the 00 Girls came back from a 2-0 deficit in the second half. Lauren Bollinger got the first goal and Paloma Teran picked up the game-tying score on a perfect assist from Sabrina Zepp.

The girls showed a lot of toughness, never giving up while battling the heat, humidity and their competition.  Three straight wins secured the girls a spot in the final game. Zepp and Bollinger Bollinger tallied two goals each, while Rita Siaha, Teran and Maya Ahumada  added a goal apiece for the tournament.  Along with her game-tying goal late in the title  game,Teran led the team with 2 assists."
