Frenzy at Region 1 Presidents Cup
5/30/2011—Frenzy travelled to Albany, NY this past weekend for the Region 1 Presidents Cup. With 18 players on the roster, only 14 players made the trip and one was injured. Frenzy’s opening game against NEFC from MA was a battle from the beginning. With only two subs, Frenzy managed to score first but NEFC tied it in the second half. NEFC scored the winning goal in the extra stoppage time, collided with Frenzy’s goalkeeper, to win by 2-1. The collision injured Frenzy’s goalkeeper and she was out for the rest of the tournament.
In the second game, without the goalkeeper and down to one sub, Frenzy dominated against KSC from DE but only to find themselves 1-0 at the half. KSC tied the game in the second half and take the lead when the goalie punt the ball, with the wind, that bounced over our defender and over our goalie and came to rest at the back of the net. You will probably see it on You Tube. Frenzy just couldn’t find the net and dropped 1-2 against KSC.
In the third game on Sunday morning, Frenzy was determined to come home with the win against Express, NH. It was another excited and closed match that went to 2-2 until our strikers was taken down in the box. The Frenzy converted the PK and won 3-2.
This is the second year that the Frenzy made it to Regional. They came close again but just fell short to make it thru. The girls gave every effort and they should be proud of it. We will be back, may be the third time is the charm!
Frenzy is looking for dedicated players and goalkeeper for 2011-2012 season. Tryout is on Monday, 6/6 at 6-7:30pm at USTC and Monday, 6/13 at 6-7:30pm at USTC. For more information, please contact Giap Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org.
