After a great start to the weekend on Saturday both Rush Select U11B and U12B were in good positions to advance after two wins. Unfortuantely Sunday saw both teams defeated. U11B lost in the final agaist a good Cincinatti Cup Crew Team, and the U12B were defeated in thier final group games to deny them the oppurtunity to play in a championship game. 

Overall a great weekend for the teams. Well done to all involved.

Thursday, 17 July 2012
The '01 Michigan Rush Select Girls followed up their championship performance in the TFA United Cup with a Runner-up performance at the US Club Soccer Midwest Regional just outside of Chicago, Illinois on June 29 and 30.   The team played in the U11 Premier division. The team started out strong with victories over Sockers Allstars and Minnesota Thunder Elite; 5-0 and 3-0 respectively.   The next game pitted the girls against a very good Eclipse Select team for a 2-1 loss. This created a three way tie in the division, which thanks to the low number of goals against for the tie-breaker, allowed Michigan Rush Select to move on to the championship game. In this game the girls faced a high quality team from the Tennessee Soccer Club (TSC) ending in 5-2 loss. Overall, the girls had a great experience and were able to face some very good teams from multiple states; all while playing some good soccer.
