RSLís Hopes of a Disney
Showcase Championship Ends with Semi-Final Loss
Early on it looked as if RSL u-18
girls would continue their amazing Showcase run. Three minutes into the game
Chelsea Klotz dribbled the ball to the end line where she would beat the
Albertson Fury defender around the corner and to the near post. Klotz sent
the ball to the middle of the box to Tishia Jewell. Jewell one timed the
ball past the Albertson keeper for the quick score. That would be the last
real opportunity in the game for RSL.
Albertson would tie the game at 1
before the half on a miss played clearance. In the second half the RSL
defense would withstand Albertsonís relentless attack for most of the half. But,
Albertson would find the back of the net two more times for a 3 to 1 victory
over RSL and a berth in the Championship game against Eclipse.
Albertson would eventually lose to
Eclipse 3 to 1 in the championship game. Eclipse was also last years Disney
Showcase Bracket Champions.
