Cascade Football Club’s G00 Green team, a girls youth soccer team, won the Adidas Clash of the Borders Tournament on Sunday, June 29, in Vancouver, Wash. They are now girls U-14 gold division champions. G00 Green tied their first game 1-1, and won their second and third games 3-0 and 4-1, earning a spot at the semi-finals, which they won 4-0.

In the Gold Finals, they beat a Washington State Premiere League team, 3-1. They played their last two games with only 13 total players, a few of them with injuries. Their final opponents were a physically aggressive team who weren’t used to losing. The Green girls played their hearts out, and came away with a big win and a new biggest moment for the team.
