MEFH ending record: 5-0-0. ME Elite traveled to the Limelight College FH Showcase, held at Bentley University yesterday. There were 50 teams competing, with the toughest divisions being 1 & 2 day u19 CLUB divisions. MEFH u19 Club team was made up of HALF u16 players. Regardless, MEFH emerged as Champions, after defeating "Total Dutch" from NJ, named for their coaches who come from the Netherlands.

The Championship came down to a sudden death shoot-out, after play resulted in a tie (1-1). The shooter is given 8 seconds to play the ball from the 25yd line & shoot as many times as possible, until time runs out, or a goal is scored. Portland HS's Lauren McIntyre easily dodged the NJ GK, but hit the L post with her initial shot. McIntyre had followed the shot & with the GK down, lifted the ball into the net to score for MEFH.

NYA's GK Elizabeth Coughlin came way out of the net to challenge the Total Dutch shooter, diving to stop the first attempt to get around her. Knocking the ball away from the shooter a total of 3 times, Coughlin denied the NJ shooter a single shot.

Including the Championship game, the MEFH team scored 13 goals, with only 2 against in the entire day.

Congrats MEFH Limelight Showcase Team!!
