Iowa Girls Capture 2 State Cup Titles
The High School age groups have completed the State Cup competition in Iowa and the Iowa Rush have won two age groups as the U17 and U18 Rush Girls have been crowned Champions!
The U17 Girls (at right) earned their second State Cup Championship in a row after going 3-0 in group play where they recorded wins against #2 seed JUSC/WDM, PSC and CRSA/ISC. Iowa Rush scored 12 goals while giving up just 2 in the first 3 games. The final game pitted the #1 seeded Iowa Rush team against the #2 seeded JUSC/WDM team, Rush scored 1 goal and that was all it took to bring home their State Cup Championship.
The U18 Girls ended their fall season on a high note with a hard-earned State Cup Championship of their own! Iowa Rush played 4 first round games, beating DM Menace, BSA, IA Alliance and JUSC/WDM. In the final game, Iowa Rush went on to play IA Alliance who is the returning State Cup Champion as well as defending Regional Champions. A very competitive game ended with a 3-1 scoreline and the State Cup Championship.
Both teams will now advance to the Region II Championships in Dayton, Ohio in June. Congratulations girls!
