"Scouting Report" - G.I.T. 2009 - Revised

We are in Group B of the Elite Red Division. The complete schedule for this division can be found by clicking here.  The team assignments to all divisions can be found by clicking here.


Game 1: Lou Fusz Strikers

This team is part of the Lou Fusz club complex from St. Louis.  They are currently ranked #20 in Region II by National Soccer Ranking.com;and 17th in Region II  by Soccer Girls.   Played in the MRL Premier Division this fall against very tough competition including Eclipse, ELA Elite, Vardar and BV Stars among others.  We have played them twice although both games were some time ago.  The girls tied 1-1 at the 2004 Veteran's Invitiational while the Strikers won 3-0 at the G.I.T. in 2006.  I recall the game, it was played Sunday morning in the stadium and it was much more competitive than 3-0.

Take a look at their Got Soccer team page for some game scores.
Also their Soccer in College team page which has some additional scores.

Here's the club's website:  Lou Fusz Soccer Club.

Game 2: NWAL Lightning

This team is based in Bentonville, Arkansas, the home of Wal-Mart Stores. They look to be a recently formed team.
