The girls were undefeated in the first 3 games of the round-robin bracket winning 2-0, 2-0, and 2-0, facing several tough top ranked regional teams from NJ.  The final game was played against #26 in the country ranked STA Morris United from NJ, who had outscored the same opponents 13-0 over the weekend.  Tied at 1-1 with less than 2 minutes left, the Bays pulled a defender to go for the win.  STA countered with a beautiful individual run resulting in an amazing 20+ yard looping shot that found the back of the net.  Even in the final seconds the Bays were in their final third again pushing until the last whistle, the girls should be super-proud of a great weekend of soccer.

Amanda Post Memorial Tournament Undefeated Champions



The Bays Chelsea Lightning U11 girls were crowned Champions of the Amanda Post Memorial Soccer tournament in March 2014 in Ellicott City, Maryland.  The undefeated girls displayed an attractive possession style of soccer with a high-tempo free-flowing offense with 8 girls scoring goals over the four game weekend, backed by a rock-solid defense only giving up one goal against.

BBSL A Division Undefeated Champions


The girls went 8-0 in the BBSL U11 A Division in the Spring of 2014.  We surprised a few of the girls with their awards at a mid-summer training session then went out to Red Robin as a team afterwards to celebrate!

OC Beach Duels Sand Soccer Undefeated Champions



The girls had a blast at the 2014 Sand Duels tournament in Ocean City, MD the first weekend of June.  High-fives, hugs, fist-pumps, jumping in the surf, cheers from our supporters, kayaking on the bay, and hanging out as a team all weekend had the girls super-relaxed and confident throughout the 7-game day.  The team split into 2 sides and were the undefeated Champions in both the U11 A Division and U11 B Divisions.  A potent offense produced 19 goals while our defense conceeded only 3 goals with each girl taking a turn playing goal keeper.  A great time was had by all.
