After a promising start, the Galaxy 01 girls’ bid to win the South Region Presidents Cup Championship has come to a close.
The Galaxy girls started the tournament with an early morning 2-1 win over Louisiana. The following day, though, they fell 1-4 to Tennessee in a scorching hot game. They still had a path to the semifinals if they could pull out a decisive win on Friday against South Carolina; unfortunately, despite a very strong showing in the second half, the Galaxy girls fell short, losing 1-3.
Rather than dwell on the loss, the team celebrated how far they had come with a cookout and an impromptu game of street soccer against another team at the hotel, and made plans to return to Regionals next year.
