The Richmond Kickers U-13 Girls Elite brought home the club’s first girls eleven-a-side State Cup Championship after defeating Braddock Road in the finals yesterday 3-1 in Williamsburg. After defeating the defending state and regional champion, the Northern Virginia Majestics, in the semifinals, the Kickers used another solid defensive effort to bring home the Cup. Coach Rob Ukrop said "The girls believed that through teamwork and trust, they could win State Cup. Our mantra was ’We Believe!’ While I am thrilled that they are now State Champions, I am most pleased with their development as young ladies who care about each other and our community." The team will now represent Virginia at Regional Championships in West Virginia in July.
