The U12 Bristol Rockets clinched a tournament first place finish at the Nashua Columbus Day Tournament. They entered the semifinals vs. NEFC with a winning record with previous matches against NH Classics (2-0), Seacoast (4-2) and Noreaster Academica (8-0). The semifinals vs. NEFC was scoreless thorough 2 halves. A goal by Michaela Goglia in the 5 minute overtime clinched the victory to send the Rockets into the final match vs. fellow Rhode Island team, South County.
The finals proved to be another tough battle with a bigger and more physical South County squad. South County scored first but the score was tied with a goal by Olivia Cairrao. At the end of regulation and after two five minute overtimes, it remained tied. The game went into penalty shots with Jenna Cimbron making 3 amazing saves. Penalty shots were scored by Laura Lopes, Kayleigh Faria and Taylor DeMello to clinch the tournament win. It was a well fought match and a great weekend of soccer!
