Kick for the Cure Soccer Tournament

By Kayleigh Combs

During the weekend of the 22-24th of November, the Scottsdale Sports Complex put on a soccer tournament to support the breast cancer victims and survivors. The Prescott branch of the Scottsdale Blackhawks Soccer Club participated in the tournament, and out of five teams that played representing Prescott, the U12 and U14 girls both got first place for their age group.

Sophomores Megan Welborn and Haley Rasmussen and freshmen Abbey Beaman, Fiona Hull, and Kayleigh Combs played for the U16 girls team. They played in the A Bracket against some of the top teams in the state. The first game was played at 12:00 pm against the Far West Soccer 98 Bandits and ranked number 18th in the state of Arizona. It was a very tough game against some very talented soccer players, and we lost 4-0. The second game played was at 6:00 pm against North Scottsdale 98 White, ranked number 19th in state. It was a close game for the first half, but as soon as the game moved into the second half, North Scottsdale got a goal.

The next morning the team played at 8:00 against AYSO 1079 Desert Devils 98/99 who is ranked 13th in state. The opposing scored once and but soon after, the score was tried once again. In the second half, however, AYSO 1079 got one more goal on the other team and won. The last game played was at 5:30 pm against AYSO 688 Alliance 98. Ready to win a game, the A Bracket finally did with a score of 3-0. They may have not gotten first place, but it was still a great to end the weekend with a win.
