ECFC M95 Green semi finalists at the 2012 Nike Crossfire Challenge

Congratulations to ECFC M95 Green, coached by Bobby Howe, for making it to the semi finals of the 2012 Nike Crossfire Challenge. For the tournament Coach Bobby Howe added 2 players from M95 White, coached by Jesse Winship-Freyer, to round out the roster due to injury and vacation. In true Emerald City FC style all the players pulled together and battled the whole weekend.
M95 Green fought their way out of division play making it to the quarter finals against the Crossfire 95 A team, coached by Mark Collings. ECFC M95 scored 2 quick goals in the first 5 minutes and dominated throughout the game with a final emphatic score of 3-1.
In the semis, M95 Green, met a very strong WPFC 95 Black team. After regulation time both teams were at a stalemate, with the score tied at 1-1.  Nail biting penalties then ensued. Unfortunately M95 Green fell to WPFC Black 3-4 in a close penalty shoot out.
