WSA 92 Girls Champions at Mags Tournament! Defeat KCFC and KS Rush
Kansas City -- The WSA 92 girls opened the season in an auspicious manner by claiming championship hardware in the Midwest All Girls Tournament hosted by Heartland Soccer Association in Kansas City over Labor Day weekend.  A team that has involved the merger of several new players seems to have found it's rhythm and chemistry early in the preseason!

The 92 girls needed a goal by Cassidy just seconds from full time to draw even with tournament favorite KS Rush 91/92 in their opening match. The 2-2 dramatic draw would prove to be enormous later as it was that late goal by Cassidy in the dying moments that in the end secured enough points for WSA in pool play.  The team defeated Ballistics 3-0, and KCFC Heat 1-0 to claim enough points to win their group and advance to the championship match played on Monday, September 3rd.

The championship match saw some superior play and domination by the WSA 92 girls as they walked off with a 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on goals by Amber and Darby.  Fitness was definitely in the favor of our girls in the 4th match of the weekend.  

Coach Beyer credited a lot of the success of the team to a committed and dedicated training regime implemented this summer.  The WSA 92 girls worked as hard as any throughout the summer committing to 4-mile runs in the heat of the day and several "two-a-day" training sessions.  

The WSA 92 girls are coached by Michael Beyer and will next begin a quest to contend for a league trophy. 

Congratulations WSA 92 Girls 2007 MAGS Champions!

91 Boys Finalists in BASC Labor Day Tourney! Lose to Thunder 89 in Finals

In spite of playing against some older competition the WSA 91 boys proved they were very worthy competition at the 2007 BASC Labor Day Invitational Tournament played at the Indian Springs, Broken Arrow Soccer Complex.

The WSA 91 boys defeated Extreme 91 6-2, Blitz 91 3-0, and Thunder 90 3-2 to go unbeaten in first round competition winning their group. The team formulated an attacking brand of soccer that saw several players score and help create goals.

In the championship match WSA 91 would simply run out of gas late in the match against the older Thunder 89 team.  WSA 91 controlled the early tempo of the match before giving away a goal against the run of play in the 20th minute of the first half.  After giving away a goal in the first minute of the 2nd half WSA battled back to draw within a goal, but after a player was ejected for his 2nd yellow card the team had to gamble playing a man down to try to get the equalizer and became susceptible to counterattacking opportunities. The final score of 4-1 was not indicative of the competitiveness of the match.

WSA 91 boys won the u16 BASC championship last year and honorably attempted to defend that title this year.  

The squad also was champions of the 2007 WSA Roundrobin earlier this summer.  The team is coached by Pedro Colina.

Congratulations WSA 91 boys on a great performance in the 2007 BASC Labor Day Tournament!
90 Girls Finalists in BASC Labor Day Invitational

The WSA 90 girls were still trying to find their rhythm as their tournament weekend was ending, but before things were all said and done the girls had grabbed a tournament trophy.  

WSA 90 defeated Thunder 89 1-0, Extreme 91 5-1, and Bartlesville Elite 90 3-0 to reach the finalist stage of the tournament.  Hope Williams led all goals corers for the team and a strong and organized backline helped keep track of things in the defensive half of the field. 

WSA 90 lost to Ponca City 4-0 in an off performance, but coach Roger Bush believes his team learned from the outing nonetheless. 
The WSA 90 girls were playing their first games incorporating 10 new players into their roster.  So with all things considered, the team played exceptionally well.
WSA 90 girls are coached by Roger Bush and team managers are Mr. Jim Campbell, Mrs. Brenda Garner, and Mrs. Teddie Harmon.

Congratulations WSA 90 girls on a great weekend for claiming the runner-up trophy!
WSA 93 Girls Finalists in BASC Labor Day Tournament!

The WSA 93 girls saw many new faces in their line-up at the BASC Labor Day Tournament, but it didn't take the team long to find a rhythm and chemistry.

WSA 93 opened the tournament with a back and forth clash with Extreme 93 FC.  WSA 93 grabbed a 1-0 lead, before seeing Extreme draw the score level.  The team then took command again on a goal from Kayla, but once again Extreme battled back for an equalizer.  With the score line level Jessica would find a chance to put back a rebound for the winner, giving WSA an all important 3-2 win. 
In game two WSA would meet Norman Fury and while the team came out with momentum and took control early it found goal scoring difficult.  Kayla would strike for WSA about 15 minutes in to give the team a 1-0 advantage.  Many near misses and great goal scoring opportunities later WSA still secured a marginal 1-0 advantage.  Midway through the 2nd half Norman scored a goal from long range that would have seemed to change the momentum.  However. WSA responded, and in the dying moments, Candice struck a bomb from 25 yards out that snuck below the bar and gave WSA the dramatic 2-1 win and a guaranteed spot in the finals against Nationals 93.

WSA found tired legs, injuries, and exhaustion too much to overcome in the championship match as Nationals walked away with the win.  However, WSA 93 was proud and excited of their efforts and their tournament runner-up trophy. 

WSA 93 girls are coached by Roger Bush and team manager is Mrs. Candia Fields.

Congratulations WSA 93 on an excellent weekend, for your continued perseverance, and for representing your club and community with class and dignity. 
WSA 94 Girls Reach Quarters at Plano; Defeat Andromeda
The WSA 94 girls have quickly become one of Oklahoma soccer's finest teams.  This past Labor Day weekend it took another of Oklahoma's premier teams to end WSA's run at the Plano Labor Day Tournament.  

The WSA 94 girls used a 4-1 win over Ingram FC of Arkansas and a 2-1 dramatic and huge win over Andromeda of Texas to qualify for a spot in the quarterfinals.  

Waiting on the other side of the bracket was no other than TSC 94 White, 2007 Oklahoma's state runners-up.  After losing their goalkeeper, WSA still battled with the infamous TSC squad, but could not find goals on this day.  TSC would come out on top 3-0, but until after a respectable battle by WSA 94 girls.

WSA 94 girls are coached by Terry and Dustyn Hall and team manager is Mr. Chris Foster.

Congratulations WSA 94 girls on advancing in yet another tournament and for once again representing your club and soccer community with class.
Respect Everyone... FEAR NO ONE!
