MVU plays strong in defeat

Submitted By Ellie Orr

Mission Valley United's girls under-13 travel soccer team had their last league game of the season against the Burlingame Tornadoes on Saturday, Nov. 13. Despite the 1-0 defeat, MVU played valiantly with a roster missing a number of its key contributors.

MVU struggled to connect clean passes with one another. Despite the fact that the ball was on the MVU half of the field a majority of the game, goalkeeper Emily Banks proved just how strong she can play her position. Ending the first half 0-0, the team went into half time confident that they could play better in the second half.

Midway through the second half the Tornadoes got a powerful shot on goal and, unfortunately, scored the game's lone goal. Becoming a bit discouraged, the team slowly began to lose their energy and their drive to play. Although the game ended with a 1-0 Burlingame Tornadoes win, MVU remains in second place in league standings. Despite the loss, MVU can't wait to bring back the trophy for State Cup Tournament.
