Eastside Kicker girls take Niagara Pioneer International Soccer Tournament

Eastside Kickers girls U11 team celebrates victory.

Coach Jen Ferriera's Eastside Kickers' U11 girls team made the trek to the Fort Niagara Pioneer International Soccer Tournament the weekend of June 30, and returned to Ohio with the championship trophy. The girls played four games and scored 23 goals.

Four different opposing teams, from New York and Ontario, together scored only one goal against the Eastside Kickers, on a penalty kick. After the championship win (7-0), team members ran across the field singing "Hang on Sloopy," and spelling out O-H-I-O. These girls did our city and state proud.

Pictured with their coach are team members Julia O'Donnell, Jayden Weaver, Fiona Sweeney, Ella Fleischer, Eliza Tobin, Maddie Hansen, Grace Mackie, Gracie Stover, Parker Gelinas, Peyton Gelinas, Grace Beedles, Claire Stephenson, Isabella Rosalini and Kennedy Kostos.
