[17 July, 2018 by Team Manager Yvonne Valiquette] MVLA Roma 06G ECNL started the 2018-2019 season with a strong showing at the Davis Legacy College Showcase on July 13th. The girls endured the blazing hot relentless Davis sun and walked away with a 2nd place finish loosing to Southern California team Eagles SC 0:1 in the finals. Over the course of the weekend, Roma scored more goals then any other U13 team in the tournament with a tally of 14 goals for and 4 against. Each of the players put in a strong showing, with special recognition going to forwards Samantha Sanchez, Emily Gehrlein-Allen and center back Sarah Tate being named by the Tournament as members of the U13 Best XI team. Congratulations to the players and coach Mykell Bates.
