MUSC Blue Crush are Premier Flight Champions at the Spirit Kickoff Classic

August 28, 2018 - The U13 Girls Methacton United Blue Crush won their second tournament in back to back weekends by winning the Premier Flight at the Spirit Kickoff Classic. In the Saturday games, the Crush defeated Springfield Shockwaves 6-0 and NLS Athena 4-1 to earn a spot in Sunday’s semifinals. In an early morning match, the Blue Crush handled Pennsylvania ELITE 2006 4-1 to advance to the finals. In the final match, the Crush faced the 2018 State Cup Champion, North Union Wave who had beaten the Crush twice in 2018 by a score of 6-1, respectively and entered this game without conceding a goal in the entire tournament. As they did at the Battle at Hilltop, the Crush fell behind 0-1 in the 1st half but was able to tie it up in the 2nd half by a perfect cross and one touch finish. Regulation play ended as a 1-1 tie leading to a 10 min overtime. In extra time, both teams battled heat and exhaustion with the Crush scoring the game deciding goal on another cross and one touch finish. Two tournament championships in a row was a wonderful way to end the 2018 summer campaign.
