The PA Rush 2000 Girls brought home the NCS Pennsylvania State Cup Championship on Sunday morning at the USTC Complex in Downingtown, PA. The girls played the Lower Merion Storm in the Final game after knocking off FC Bucks 1-0 in the Semi-final. The Final was a hard fought contest with the Rush going down 1-0 late in the first half. Keeping their composure into the second half the Rush tied it up with a great strike from Trisha Hauck. Chances were tough to come by for the remainder of regulation play and overtime. The title was decided on Penalty Kicks and the Rush triumphed 3-2 with goals from Priya Kaneria, Molly Katzmann and Mackenzie Edwards. It was a phenomenal team effort with everyone doing their part. Now it's onto the Region 1 Tournament to represent Pennsylvania East at the University of Rhode Island in late June. It was a great Day for PA Rush because another 3 teams also won the EPYSA Challenge state cup, Congratulation’s to Rush 01, Nero 98 and Rush 97 all girls.
