The U12 Girls final was a true nail biter! Bays Speed Demons vs. Lakehill Candy Cane Crush with the game tied at the end of regulation time and still tied after 5 minutes of extra time. The match then moved to 3v3 with no goalie, and they managed to hold each other off for several minutes before Lakehill executed a perfectly placed kick from one end of the field to the other, over the head of the final defender and into the goal for the win. A great game girls!
