The Parkland travel soccer Girls 2008 Team won their Division at the Weston Cup on Saturday.
They went 4-0 in the tournament and outscored their opponents 10-2 in the four games. Sophia Canizales scored the only goal in the Championship Game and led the team in goals with three, while Sophia Ruiz and Sydney Leath had two.
Avianna Tenore, Kylie Lum, Dianna Doherty all scored as well, while Emily Black shined in net and was named MVP. The rest of the team consists of Victoria Griffith, Isabella Minichiello, Maddison Iglesias, Mya Ellis, Ria Phadke, Sari Wilson, Sofia Acosta, Alaysia Tucker, Brianna Mendez and Ella Pecaut.
“This group of girls are very humble, hard-working and deserved this win, said Head Coach Christian Raudales. “There’s a lot of new faces on the team this year, but they’ve really dedicated themselves to grow individually, and this tournament was just a result of their dedication during the last 7-8 months.”
Parkland travel soccer also officially held its end-of-the-year picnic and handed out nine scholarships to high school seniors on Saturday.
Players and referees (14+) applied by submitting an essay about what playing and officiating in Parkland soccer has meant to them, dedicated to the founder of Parkland Soccer, Pete and Linda Gado, and the late Travis Scopino, who was the vice president and referee director.
The winners, Leah Finkelman, Lauren Ofstein, Katie DeGregorio, LJ Dussinoff, Matthew Barrett, Lilliana Scopino, Dylan Brauner, Jonas Samara, and Matt Rosenthal, received $1,000.
