Richmond Kickers U13 Girls Ukrop Park recorded their second team of the week nomination showing tremendous character to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat on Saturday, May 7. Playing a very well organized Richmond Strikers 09 Premier North team that had already beaten them 5-0 in the Ultimate Cup, the girls played a strong first half, trailing 1-0 at half time. Kyleigh Funk got the second half off to the perfect start with an early goal to make the game 1-1, but Strikers responded strongly straight away to restore the one goal lead at 2-1. The U13 Girls Ukrop Park would not be denied, Emerson Cope scoring a game-tying free-kick in the final minute of the game, and then scoring an audacious 40 yard winner in injury time to seal the deal.
Congratulations to the girls for a fantastic come back win! Keep up the good work!
