MVU finishes strong at Thanksgiving tournament
Submitted By June Heaton
Fremont's MVU-93-Girls-Black capped off a successful 2011 tournament season at a November weekend tournament in San Diego. The team traveled over the Thanksgiving holiday to SoCal to play in the Nomads' Thanksgiving 2011 Showcase.
Undefeated in the first four games, the girls entered the semifinals facing Olympique Montreux of Utah. Proving to be the eliminator, Olympique's speed and ball control left MVU with a first place win in their bracket and third place in their division.
In addition to their team victories, MVU also celebrated goalie Jessica Espinosa's first place victory in the tournament's Goalie Wars. Espinosa went 3-1-1 in her first five games beating Lauren Harper of the Eagles Central Coast with a score of 3-1 in the final game.
