U10 Lady knights Red SPOTLIGHT

Putting the Spotlight on the U10 Lady Knights Red

 

Imagine yourself on a team that has had many losses.  A year of playing up against bigger, faster, stronger opponents and still being new to the select world soccer.  Knowing that it will take a lot of work and dedication to get to the top.  Not giving up when things are hard.  I want to take this time to put the spotlight on a team that has overcome these obstacles through their hard work and effort and now currently sits 3rdin the Ohio South youth soccer rankings; the 2010 Delaware Lady knights Red.  

They work hard to find the smallest things for improvement.  They work to prepare themselves as a team; they take feedback and develop so they are ready when it’s their turn to play.

The coaches understand everyone has unique talent and with that comes opportunity to achieve a desired result and path to success. They find opportunity for everyone to stretch their limits and develop their own potential. We want to congratulate the players and coaches of the U10 Lady knights for being outstanding on and off the field. 

 

Please take a few minutes to look over this team video we put together and read the Bio of this team as it was written by the coaches. 

 

 

2010 Delaware DSSC Lady Knights Red

The U10 Delaware Lady Knights Red team just finished up their third season as a core group and they went undefeated for the second time in their short history. Their Fall season can be summed up with a top level COPL league title, top level COPL Tournament Champions, Columbus Sand Soccer Tournament Champions, Party on the Pitch Champions, Crew Fall Classic Champions, and Flag City Fall Classic Champions! These various results have the Red U10 team ranked 3rd in Ohio South and 95th nationally according to youthsoccerrankings.us.

 

 

This team started as an Academy U8/U9 combined team and definitely took their lumps, winning very few games during the fall of 2016.  The winter indoor season was worse, as they didn't win a single game and were often blown out with scores like 14-0.  In the spring of 2017, they fared a little better, winning more games.  They barely missed making the OCL tournament championship game, losing 1-2 in their final match of the season.  The girls never hung their heads low, had fun, and would soon show that they learned quite a bit in their first year together. 

 

The following year expectations for the season were unclear, but that changed quickly as the girls dominated the Gahanna Fall Open, scoring 35 goals while only giving up 1 in their four games that weekend.  They even did so making rather impressive plays for a U9 team, such as scoring on crosses and corner kicks with one touch.  They moved the ball around with ease.  This team would go undefeated for the first time this Fall season as a U9 team. They won their division in the MOSSL regular season and the MOSSL tournament as well.  Along the way they also won the Dublin Charity Cup, outscoring opponents 38-1. For the entire season, they outscored their opponents 132-9, going a perfect 20-0.  

In the Spring of 2018, the U9 Lady Knights would play up an age group in the MOSSL U10 Level B division.  Right away it was clear the size and speed of the older competition would be a challenge, but the girls gained confidence as the season progressed, and they emerged in first place in the MOSSL regular season standings.  They would then be lumped in the A division of the MOSSL U10 tournament, and finished in third place.  Along the way, they played in a very tough Nike Cup, and went 1-1-1.  They lost to a very good Total Futbol TFA Elite team, one of the best in the state.  For the spring club tournament, they traveled to Bowling Green and made the championship game, before falling just short to an excellent Medina team at a score of 1-2. The girls mostly dominated possession, but two big shots found their way into the net for Medina. The girls ended their Spring season by winning the Starburst Soccer Tournament. 

 

The start of the 2018 fall season came with high expectations.  The girls were hungry for more and more competition.  The Lady Knights tried the Central Ohio Premier League's top (Elite) division. They won four tournaments, including a highly competitive Crew Fall Classic, the Findlay Flag City Classic, the Party on the Pitch tournament in Cincinnati, and the end of season COPL tournament.  They finished the entire season 27-0-1 – with their only non-win being to a West Virginia team. They later beat that same team for a tournament championship 4-0 to avenge their only blemish (tie) on their season.  They outscored their opponents by a ridiculous margin of 183-21 for the season.  The sky is the limit for these girls and their coaches are looking to challenge them in a way this Spring that will continue to promote their growth. As they always have done in the past we are sure they will rise to meet these challenges head on!
