WSA Just Before Kick-Off in Wednesday's Regional Semifinals in Little Rock
WSA 01 PLAYS WELL IN REGIONAL SEMIFINAL
Valiant Effort, Team Fought to End After Conceding Early
Little Rock - A goal given away off the first restart of the game, 90 seconds in, followed by an unfortuante positioned referee 10 minutes later, led to a two goal deficit that sent WSA 01 White chasing Wednesday's USYSA Regional Semifinal match from the outset. The team's nerves finally setlled for the ocassion and as the first half concluded there was an err of confidence growing. Eduardo pinged the cross-bar to open the 2nd half, and a fairy tale ending looked like it could still be authored. But a 5th game in 6 days, and a 2-goal climb were too much. True to their "Shark" and "West Side" pride the team fought through to the full time whistle. WSA 01 boys had a fanstastic season and tournament. They were one of only three Oklahoma teams to reach this stage of the national championship series. Congrats boys! Look for more info later this week on the boys Regional experience.
