As for this past weekend, the In-House Boys and Girls held their season ending tournament. On the Girls' side, the Champions were the Blue Stingrays with the White Sharks finishing second and the Green Dragons third. As for the Boys, the Blue Whales took first with the Iron Dragons second and the Panthers third. Congratulations to all of our boys and girls who played some exciting games and exhibited sportsmanship and some strong technical skill. Thank you also to the coaches and Commissioners for once again providing a fun and exciting day for our U8's.

As for the older kids, the Tribe (U9 Girls) lost 5-2. They played this team and lost 8-0 in the second week of the season and actually held a 2-0 lead in this game, but just ran out of steam. A very competitive game and the girls have shown great strides over the weeks. As for the other Community Girls, the Red Rockets beat Deer Lakes 13-4 and the Red Raptors defeated our heated rival Shaler 3-2. The Black Hawks lost 5-2 to Avonworth with Maci Glath scoring both our goals. According to coach Damien, the Black Hawks may not have the best record, but they sure are having fun. The Community Boys played four games in total. The U9/U10 Blue Dragons lost to Harmar 4-2 and the U9/U10 Wizards tied their game with a buzzer beating shot, coming back from a 3-1 deficit with 5 minutes left. The U10 Community boys continued their strong year with an 8-1 victory over Fox Chapel.

The Sunday travel teams continued to play hard in representing our Club. Our U10 Boys finally got a well-deserved victory, overwhelming Seneca Valley 13-3, and look forward to carrying this momentum into the last game and forward toward the Open Tournament in Edinboro. The U10 Girls tied Hampton, 4-4, coming back from a 4-2 deficit to earn a tie. The U11 Boys played a double header, losing Sunday 4-1 and then bouncing back and beating Hampton on Monday 7-3. By far the best effort of the year. The U11 Girls were victorious once again, beating Sewickley 6-4. Similarly, the U12 Boys continued to roll the competition, this time with a 3-0 victory over Hampton. The U12 Girls lost a heartbreaker 3-2, giving up the losing goal in the last 2 minutes. They definitely deserved a better fate. Despite a fine effort, our U14Boys lost 4-1to Pine Richland, but our U17 continued their winning way with an 11-1 victory. Finally, our U17 Girls lost a tough one to Monroeville, 4-2.

Let us keep up the good work and end the season on a high note.

We are still in need of someone to lead the Summer Picnic Committee. We need someone with good organizational skills to help us get this picnic off the ground. I know that you are out there - all you need to do is let me know. At most, only 1-2 hours a week will be necessary, and quite a bit less for many weeks leading up to the picnic. It would be unfortunate if we cannot hold the picnic as this was our chance to get together and have a good time, and also to introduce the North Hills Community to our Club which would serve to benefit all of us. If I do not get a volunteer to head the Committee by the end of the season we will have no choice but to cancel our plans for the Summer Picnic which was to be held in August.

Finally, this upcoming weekend, Gianna Reed of the Club will be raising money for an orphanage in Honduras as part of an ongoing humanitarian effort. Gianna will be raising funds to purchase soccer balls for the children of the orphanage, to be delivered in July. These children live in Las Brisas, Honduras which is a very poor area and their favorite thing to do is play soccer.

Gianna has taken it upon herself to raise funds for these children and the North Hills Soccer Club is very happy to support her in this effort. This weekend, Gianna will be at a table outside of the Reis Run concession stand taking donations for this effort. Please visit Gianna to give her a pat on the back and to donate any amount that is possible. Our Club is proud of Gianna as she uses her love of soccer to support this humanitarian effort.

Thank you and have a great rest of the week. I will see you at Reis this Weekend.
