Congratulations to the ‘99B Blue on a great run at US Club Nationals, where they narrowly lost in the finals by the score of 2-1. After a quick turnaround, they travel to So Cal to participate in the Surf Cup Super Group next weekend. Good luck to all!

A group of girls made up predominantly of Marin FC 2002 and 2003 girls pool players are currently traveling through Denmark and Sweden on a trip organized by Kodzoman Soccer. In the #1 Dana Cup tournament in Fredrikshavn, Denmark on July 10, the 2002 and 2003 teams finished the tournament as international champions. Both teams went undefeated in the tournament, playing seven games over four days against Swedish, Danish and Spanish opposition.
The inaugural tournament for the FC 2002 Girls Blue team was one to remember. With only a few weeks of training under their belt, Coach Chris King and his players took the field for their first time on June 18 and finished the tournament as the National Cup XV West Regional Champion. Four days, four top flight opponents (DeAnza Force, Davis Legacy, SoCal Blues, and Sacramento United), four distinct styles of play, four hard-fought matches, four dramatic goals, and four shut-out victories later, the 02 Girls Blue emerged as the undefeated champions of the 2002 Girls Super Group and qualified for the 2016 National Cup XV Finals. It was a beautiful thing to watch.
