BRADENTON, Fla. (Via Super Y League) – Save for the opening 10 minutes, the Midwest United U18 Girls pieced together a dominant performance in the title match of the 2016 Super Y League North American Finals.
Kelli Doyle led the way with two goals as Midwest United earned a 4-0 victory against Washington Spirit Academy VA on Tuesday at IMG Academy.
“I think it was a good game,” Midwest United Head Coach Tony Deakin said. “It took us a while to get into our flow, but second half we came out and were fantastic. We started winning the ball a lot more and then we took our chances in the second half.”
Midwest United carried a 1-0 lead into the break and then the offense broke the match wide open in the second half. Doyle’s own rebound was her second of the match and pushed the lead to 3-0.
Sydney Burke had a standout match with a goal and an assist while Ashley Postma capped off the scoring late in the second half.
“I’ve been working here for the last couple years, and I’m so excited that they won the national championship,” Deakin said. “They worked so hard.”
