Scripps United Girls Under-11 Red won their quarter final match, 4-0, yesterday morning. They won their group games the previous weekend to advance as the top seed, and Saturday they won 5-0 in the first elimination game.
Our semifinal match was scheduled for yesterday afternoon, but all games were cancelled due to weather, and possible lightning storms.

Oh, did I not mention who scored the fourth goal in the quarterfinal? It was this girl -
Needless to say, she's thrilled, as you can probably tell from the photo. The whole thing is a blur to her, but she does remember nutmegging (passing the ball through an opponent's legs) the keeper. If it were hockey, you would say she hit the five-hole.
