2007 and 2008 Girls both make semi-finals!

BC United's 2008 and 2007 Girls Teams both make their respective semi-finals, finishing top and second in their respective brackets!

Saturday morning started early, with the 2007 girls taking on RVC SC out of Rockville, New York, at 8am. Concluding the day with a kick-off against Hereford Hotshots.

With no background on RVC SC, the girls started out with some back and forth play, both teams probing the each other to see what the other team was about. 

Perpetual play by RVC SC through the center of the field, led to many regains of possession for BC and strong play by Gia D as the #5, playing balls into her midfielders to start off new attacks. 
Wide midfielders Izzy W #11 and Grace H #7, looked to combine and catch the opposition out with constant switches of play, ranging from driven low passes to lofted higher passes. 

The switches of play eventually paid off, landing BC a corner kick. Stepping up to take the corner was BC's #11, Izzy W, who instinctively read the run of fellow teammate Grace H, who had sneaked in from the edge of the box towards the front post.
Izzy played the ball in low, to which Grace calm and collectively finished in the left side as if it grew there. 

With regimental discipline in central midfield, Madi B Roslyn S, BC's #6 and #8, continued a great recent run of form, rotating and spraying balls for attacking players to latch onto. With the aid of BC's central midfield dominance, first goal assistor, Izzy W, landed herself on the score sheet with a phenomenal effort in which with a quick drop of the shoulder, lost her mark on the left side of the box, and ripped a shot across and away from the helpless goalkeeper. Final score 2-0 (W).

The girls then countered on a great first game and shut out Hereford Hotshots with a 5-0 win, setting them up for a semi-final appearance against top of the group, Western New York Flash.

2008 Girls found themselves in a tight spot with their 4 pm rendezvous with West Islip Vipers. Vipers, coming off the back of a 3-1 win against Garden City, were warm and ready to finish their day off with another win. 

But today was not the day and Kaylee C proved too good for the opposition strike force. Kaylee provided her fellow 2008 team with a goalkeeping spectacle, spreading herself big in 1v1's and reading play constantly to put in game-changing saves. An unfortunate 50/50 1v1 eventually got the better of the keeper, sparking a fresh drive from the team. 

Feeding off of Kaylee's efforts, the team stepped up, pulling a goal back to disrupt the Viper's advances. With little time to go, BC's girls put in a defensive shift, slowing play down and seeing the game out to a 1-1 tie. 

Game two saw the girls face a solid Garden City team, looking to bounce back after a loss to Vipers earlier on in the day.
The game started off and spectators could tell that Garden City came out meaning business, looking some goals early on before fatigue started to set in.

BC went down to an early goal, sparking the team to dig deep to shut the gap before it could change. 
The girls responded with bursts of energy, the first, from Bella Y, clearing up a -cleared kick on the edge of the 18, nestling the ball into the top right corner. The girls embraced and assured each other that they were going to be winning this game.
Following Bella's lead, Ashley H then dragged the opposition #4 out of position, dropping her shoulder and cutting in on her right foot just inside the left side of the box, sliding the ball low right of the keeper and giving BC the lead.

The girls didn't stop there, they dug deep and an individual burst of speed from Saeryn H landed her inside the box, driving between the Garden City #4 and #5 before pinging the ball into the left side of the net. With the 3-1 lead and some breathing room, BC slowed the pace and started controlling play.

With play being dictated, Keeli came into the game as BC's #4. Not being phased by clear physical adversity, Keeli calmy mopped up loose balls and overhit passes, starting new attacks by feeding balls into the midfield. 
This spurred South Side's Serbian import, Miladija P to break through multiple times to land driven shots into the opposition goal.

Before the games end, Olivia W, finished off her day with a well-deserved goal, letting the ball roll across her body from a left-sided cross, clipping the ball into the top left corner where the Garden City goalkeeper could not reach.

With this, BC 2008 Girls posted a 6-1 win and advanced themselves into the semi-final tomorrow at . 

Great Job Girls.
