Team won the top flight with Stephanie having five goals in three games.
#21 Riley Mastriani - STA MOSC 2007 Girls
Riley has been one of the rocks in the heart of the STA MOSC 2007 Girls defense. Her tackling, ball-winning, anticipation and reading of the game sets the tone for the whole team to follow. As co-captain, Riley and the rest of the team's defensive players have helped the whole team have success all season.
#2 Sofia Sardeira - STA-MUSC 2007G NL EDP
Sofia had a big part in the team's success over the weekend with three out of the team's nine goals.

With her speed, dribbles and runs Sofia was a constant threat to her opponents.

Maggie showed absolute brilliance this weekend, scoring two goals in the first game and a great solo run winning goal in the second game. Her confidence was unmatched and had a big impact on the team’s winning results.
