Las Vegas Premier 97 claim silver in 2009 Las Vegas Mayors Cup

The Las Vegas Premier 97 girls won their group of the Las Vegas Mayors Cup this pas weekend.  They tied Sparta from Utah 1-1 with a goal from Ari Gonzales.  Then, they won a payback match against Impact 97 5-2.  After conceding an early goal in the 3rd minute, they responded with 4 great goals in the next 18 minutes from Madisyn Delaney, Krista Lee, Ari Gonzalez and Jordan Harden.  Ari Gonzalez tallied another late in the 2nd half sending them to the semi finals.  They faced a Cal North team in Central Valley Cyclones and on a goal in the 8th minute held on to win the game making it to their first final match of the year and hopefully the first of many to come.  In the final, they faced another Cal North team in South Valley United Elite.  Entering their fifth game of the weekend proved to be a little much against a very, very physical team as they fell 4-0 to claim second place. 

The girls showed a great improvement and played some beautiful soccer over the weekend.  If they keep up the hard work, they will surely continue to do well.
