Northwest Champions League – Finalists

G15-NW-FinalistsTrophyOur U15 (1998) Girls traveled to Portland, Oregon February 1-3, 2013 to compete in the Final Four of the Northwest Champions League Tournament. This competition was played out over three rounds of play beginning in August, with Round 2 in October. The Girls went undefeated through the first two rounds with a record of five wins and one draw to reach the Finals. In the Semi-Final, the Girls took on FC Nova from Boise, Idaho and came away with a well-deserved 1-0 win. The scoreline was not necessarily indicative of play as MUFC maintained possession and dictated the tempo of the game. With this win, they were through to the Final to take on Tualatin Hills United (THUSC) , a strong team from nearby Beaverton, Oregon who also held an undefeated record. Unfortunately, the girls were beat 2-0 in the final. Coach Jeff Hodgson commented on the quality of their opponent but was also very proud of the manner in which his team competed throughout. Congratulations to the girls and to all four of our teams that competed in the NWCL. MUFC teams made three Finals which was a great accomplishment.
