The Soccer Club of Rockford (SCOR) U12 girls team, coached by Pat Dalton and Barb Engelkes, won the Canton Cup Tournament, playing up in the U13 age bracket. After four very physical games, the girls emerged victorious with a 2-1 win in the finals against PASS. This was the team’s fifth year playing in this tournament and, after many close victories over the years, they finally captured the Cup.
