Wilmington United's much improved 04 WUFA Girls team made great strides with a dominant performance at the Adidas Clash tournament in Greensboro, NC. Not only did they go undefeated and take home the crown, but they conceded no (yes, "zero") goals in the process. In the not so distant past, shots on goal for our girls were not a common phenomenon. The tables have turned significantly in opportunities, balls on frame and balls in the back of the net. 9 (nine) different girls scored this weekend and 13 goals total with a clean sheet in every game. This was a great team effort and we are proud of their heart and progress. Go Blue!
