U12 Bulldogs Kick Off the Fall with a Championship at the Spirit Kick-Off Classic
8/24/08—Participating in the Spirit Kick-Off Classic, the U12 Bulldogs prevailed over all their competition to take the Championship trophy in their division!!! Starting the tournament with a 2-2 tie against the Greater Flemington (NJ) Flames, the Bulldogs went on to beat the Rosetree Hornets to take first position in their bracket. The semi-finals game against the Radnor Black Storm was a hard fought affair, with the Bulldogs finally prevailing 2-0 to earn a slot in the Championship game Sunday afternoon. The Bulldogs were pitted against the Greater Flemington Flames in a re-match of the opening game on Saturday. After a scoreless first half, they went ahead, scoring a goal which required awesome teamwork to get past the goalie and into the net. Just to add some insurance to the score, with eight minutes remaining, the Bulldogs added another goal. Those final eight minutes, were the longest in Bulldogs history; but the defense held the Flames, and the Championship game was won 2-0. All told, the Bulldogs allowed only 2 goals in tournament, shutting out their last three opponents. This win was especially exciting, since we were the host team. The Bulldogs are coached by Andre Negahban. Congratulations Bulldogs!!!
