The Galaxy 01 Girls team had a great start to the 2018 President’s Cup this past weekend. On Saturday, they traveled to the San Marcos 5 Mile Dam fields to take on NB Ajax 01 Girls White, a South Texas State Classic League (SCL) team that is ranked 12th on GotSoccer. The Galaxy girls didn’t let this intimidate them, scoring early in the first half on a corner kick and controlling the field for most of the rest of the game. Ajax put up a strong set of attacks late in the second, but the Galaxy defense held strong, and the game ended with a 1-0 victory.
On Sunday, the Galaxy 01 Girls returned to their home fields at the Round Rock Multipurpose Complex for their second game, this time against the Centex Storm Cyclone 01G team. The Centex team is ranked 23rd in GotSoccer and had beaten Galaxy during the regular season 1-0 just three weeks earlier. The Galaxy girls had dominated that earlier game but couldn’t get the ball into the back of the net, despite a high number of shots on goal. This time, Galaxy not only controlled the play on the field and kept Centex off the scoreboard, but also punched in one goal each half, finishing up the game with a 2-0 victory.
The Galaxy team now waits for the results from the rest of the President Cup brackets to learn who their next opponent(s) will be.
