Ava O Soccer News
Welcome to Ava O Soccer!!
Ava continues to train daily for approximately one hour, not including team practices. Training includes, but is not limited to, free kicks, footwork, juggling, passing light-weight strength training, core training, agility, and cardio. She is doing very well and is looking forward to the Fall Season with Southwest Soccer Club and the New River Youth Sports Club.
Game Day – September 28
The Lady Rockets had their first encounter with the Swansboro Lady Pirates – which are a U9/U10 team. They won with a final score of 11-1 which activated the 7 goal differential. That means their official standings only show a difference of 7, not the true score.
The Bulldogs also played against the Predators and won with a score somewhere around 5-1. The predators definitely put forth a challenge but in the end, it wasn’t enough for the Bulldogs.
In this video, Ava is scoring a goal via nutmeg! Quite entertaining!
Game Day – September 21
The Lady Rockets take on the Lady Stallions at 9 AM – both from Southwest Soccer Club. Also, in the New River/Lejuene League, the Bulldogs go head to head with the Vipers at 10 AM. We are going to the 9 AM game and hopefully make it to at least half of the Bulldogs game.
Update – The Lady Rockets won 8-1. Check out the latest ECSA (Eastern Carolina Soccer Association) standings here. The Bulldogs also won but they don’t record score, and neither did I. Here’s Ava taking a free kick after a handball in the box.
