Brausa United Futebol Club’s ‘07 Blue club girls soccer tem, composed mostly of Pasadena-area girls, went undefeated to win the championship of the Overlea Cup on August 10 and 11.
The team of Emilee Mack, Gracie Asare, Riley Haney, Jaide Whitehead, Ayla Weseman, Alison Muzik, Emily Bryant, Leilah Horrigan, Lillian Barnum, Kendal Barnes, Lily Dorsey, Madelyn Raynes, Maggie Cochran, Isabella Scarlato and Natalie Baker went 3-0-1 and, with goalkeeper Horrigan allowing only one goal in four games.
“We as coaches are so proud of these girls,” said coach Cary Shank, who noted it was Brausa’s first 11-on-11 tournament of the season. “Every week they continue to push themselves and work as a team. It just amazes me how much heart these girls have.”
The team was an impressive 19-4-2 last season and will compete in the exclusive Disney Junior Showcase this November.
