Attack 13 Black are Hoover Invitational Tournament Champions!

Congratulations to Attack 13 Black for bringing home the hardware at the 2022 Hoover Invitational Tournament!

The Attack displayed excellent positivity, skill, and teamwork throughout the weekend, winning the final and finishing 1st in the tournament!

First, the Attack opened the tournament on a frigid Friday night against Trussville 13G White!  The girls dug deep and played great build-up/passing soccer to start the tournament.  The 1st goal on Friday night began with build-up play from the goalkeeper, connecting passes and breaking lines to end with a dazzling Garrincha to finish with conviction.  The Attack finished by scoring 3 more goals in the second half, winning the game 4-1.

Next, the Attack took on AFC Alabaster.  Through solid defending and continued teamwork, the Attack won 2-0 over Alabaster.  The win placed the Attack 13 Black into the Semi-Final against a sister Vestavia 13G Red Stars team.

In the Semi-Final on Sunday AM, the Attack faced their friends in a very tight game.  The team defended like champs to set up the game winning goal.  The late goal came through by great defending and passing to put the Attack through to the Final that afternoon!

The final pitted the Attack 13 Black versus the undefeated Hoover 13 Lady Phantoms Blue team.  The game was an excellent final with both teams having chances early on.  A near miss late in the game by the Hoover Lady Phantoms was followed up by a barrage of shots and shot off the post for the Attack!  Fittingly, the game could not be settled in regulation play and had to go to kicks from the mark.

Each team had 3 kicks... Hoover shot first - saved by the Attack GK!  Attack shoots - saved by the Hoover GK!  The 2nd shooter for Hoover stepped up... shot... goal for the Hoover team, now up 1-0!  Next, the Attack's 2nd shooter stepped up and calmly placed her penalty kick into the corner of the goal!  1-1 and onto the 3rd shooter!

The 3rd shooter stepped up for the shot... shot - SAVE BY THE ATTACK GK!  To the win the game, the 3rd shooter stepped up for the Attack!  BOOM!  GOLAZO!  The Attack win 2-1 on penalty kicks to win the Championship!

Congratulations to the Attack 13 Black... 2022 U10 Girls Hoover Invitational Tournament Champions!

Steamers 10 Black are Hoover Invitational Tournament Champions!

Congratulations to the Steamers 2010 Black team and Coach Rusty Cowley on winning the U13 Hoover Invitational Tournament!  They defeated the Hoover Phantoms in the first game with a dominant 2-0 win. The second game was a hard-fought back-and-forth contest against a good Memphis IFC team. Zac Parks scored the first goal, but Memphis tied it up just before halftime. Parks scored another goal in the second half, but the Memphis team answered with their own goal. After a gritty effort from the Steamers, they ended with a draw at 2-2.  The Steamers faced Trussville Fire in the final and jumped out to an early lead with a goal from midfielder Zachary Phillips from just outside the 18, and quickly followed up with another goal from Zac Parks. Trussville was able to pull one goal back in the second half, but much credit goes to keeper Nolan Blackenburg and the defensive line for keeping their lead.  Congratulations on a great end to the season!  GO STEAMERS!
