This past weekend the Northern Strikers U14 Girls team was in Edmonton for the Power Play Cup.

With a team evenly split between U12 & U14 players, they were out-sized and out-muscled in most of their games and gave up a 6-3 decision in their first game.

They pulled together in their next two, including coming back from one goal down in their final game to tie it up and then win in an NHL-style shoot-out.

This was good for the bronze medal, and a good primer for the Alberta Soccer Provincials in Calgary, March 21-22.
