Beach Academy U16 captured it’s first National Cup Championship by beating Legends in last Sunday’s final. Beach was able to avenge a PK loss in last year’s final and bring home the trophy.

Beach built some momentum by winning  five games in a row heading into the  semi’s where the met Carlsbad Elite . The game went to 2 x 15 min OT’s before it was settled in the second OT. Beach eliminated Carlsbad Elite on a pass from Kaitlin Fregulia to Savannah Demelo who finished it for the game winning goal. 

Less than 24 hours later, Beach met Legends in the Finals on Sunday morning. The two teams  have met many times in the past years with victories on both sides. This game was another see-saw battle, where once again Beach’s defense held the line. It was 0 – 0 at the end regulation . After 2 consecutive scoreless overtimes, Beach was again heading to PK’s.  After 9 rounds of PK’s Beach finally had its National Cup Championship!
Coaches Joyner and Demelo had to ask the girls many times over the last month to dig deep and find a way give everything they had. Each time they responded and in the end were rewarded with this hard fought championship!!
