After beating Mustang 04G pre-ECNL Red in the semi-finals 2-0, the team faced California Odyssey South G04 Black in the championship match. Trailing 2-1 in the second half, they evened it up in the last few minutes of the game, sending it into overtime and then to penalty kicks. The girls remained strong and pulled through, winning 3-2 (penalty kicks, 6-5). Congratulations to Barcelona White and their coaches for a great season!
