Congratulations to our U12G EDP Real Blast in finishing 2nd in the U12 Girls Platinum Division at the 2017 East Brunswick Labor Day Tournament.
Real Blast played some extremely good competition on both days of the tournament. Previous games with three of the teams were decided by one goal. In the opening game, Real Blast played top seeded East Brunswick Crush. Despite a late second half pentaly kick awarded to East Brunswick, Real Blast maintained their composure and scored with six mintues remaining to end the game tied 1-1.
Real Blast beat NJ Crush 3-1 in its second game. On Sunday, the first game with Hazlet HotShots was an exciting game and a true nail biter for all fans. Real Blast scored off of a corner kcik with ten minutes remaining. The final score was 1-0. In the final game vs SDFC, Real Blast couldn't finish their chances. Despite dominating on shots, scoring on SDFC proved to be difficult. One goal was called back by an offside. Real Blast lost the game 2-0 but still managed to secure 2nd place with their 2 wins and 1 tie.
We are very proud of these 9, 10. and 11 year old girls. Congratulationsto the Real Blast Team!
