U14 Girls Red Team places 1st !
Montrose Avalanche U-14 Girls Red took home the win for the second consecutive year during the last weekend of October at the CYS tournament in Grand Junction. Montrose came in knowing that the Grand Junction Fire was going to be tough and ready to play to win back their home title. Montrose had a big challenge to overcome, that being a lack of players. Montrose had only eleven players and no substitutes. At times, when a player had to sit out because of a minor injury, the Avalanche made do with only 10. Yet the unstoppable Avalanche powered through and made their way to the finals. In the finals against Grand Junction Fire, they won 2-0 as a result of their strong defense and goal keeper Clara Beshoar who preserved the shutout. The Avalanche plowed through the tournament to win for the second year in a row.
