The Fallbrook Fury Girls Under 11 soccer team finished as runner-up in the Nott’s Forest Labor Day Soccer Tournament.
The team worked their way through the first round of the tournament by tying the SoCal Blaze 1-1, beating Wolves FC 2-1 and tying SD United 1-1. That set up a semifinal game against the host, Nott’s Forest, who had not yet lost or given up a goal.
Peyton Brittain scored one of her three goals of the tourney in the first half and the tough Fury defense kept Nott’s out of scoring position the rest of the game.
In the finals, the Fury took on NCP Bombers from Orange County. While the Fury dominated most of the action, neither team mustered a goal. The outcome was decided on penalty kicks with the Fury losing 2 to 3.
Overall, the team had an excellent experience in the last tune-up before league opens. The Fury Girls U-11 team practices on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 5 p.m. at Ingold Sports Park.
