Freedom Starz win Oak Grove Metro East Soccer Tournament


After winning the KC Metro League U10 Girls B2 division the Freedom Futbol Club Starz headed to Oak Grove to compete in the Metro East Soccer tournament playing teams from throughout Missouri, from Sedalia to Harrisonville.


Braving the more than 90 degree heat on both Saturday and Sunday the nine girl squad showed all in attendance that they were there to win.  And win they did, but not after a rocky start.  The Starz fell behind in the early minutes of their first game and didn’t start to come together until late in that half and went in to half time down by a score of 1 – 3.  After a quick halftime chat and plenty of cold water to cool down the Starz took to the field as a different team.  Applying stifling defense and laser accurate passing the Starz easily dominated their opponent 4 – 0 through the second half and recorded their first win of the tournament.


After their first game the Starz never looked back.  Their attacking style of offense and smothering defense allowed for them to continually pressure their opponents and capitalized quickly from mistakes.


The Starz completed the tournament with 38 out of 40 possible points.  The total team effort delivered two shutouts and recorded a 1 goal scored against average per game. 


Players for the Freedom FC Starz are Laurana M., Bergan H., Brooke T., Sydney D., Makenzie “MAC” S. Makayla M., Hailey “55” W. Zoie R. and Haley C.
