Space Coast United Under-15 girls' soccer team wins State Cup title

Space Coast United's under-15 girls' soccer team captured the Florida State Cup tournament championship with a 2-1 overtime victory over Brandon on Sunday in Auburndale

After a scoreless first half, Space Coast took a 1-0 lead on a goal by Jackie Stengel, but Brandon tied it at 1-1 with three minutes remaining in regulation.
Three minutes into overtime, Stengel scored again.


"There is nothing like this," said Space Coast coach Lynne Mills. "This was a moment of true joy, and I will never forget the looks on the faces of those girls after the game ended."
It was the first State Cup title for Mills, who has been with the team since it began playing competitive soccer.


"We have been to the Final Four five years in a row and never have been able to reach the final. This was our year," Mills said. "We dedicated the victory to another Space Coast United coach Fidgi Haig, who lost his father in the Haitian earthquake." more
