The under-14 Delta Coastal Sting Metro girls soccer team took gold in their group at the USA Cup tournament in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Sting team went 6-1 (won-lost) through the round robin and playoff portion of the tournament, then defeated the Northern Lights Soccer Club from Minnesota 3-0 in the championship match.

“The players had to endure 100-degree (Fahrenheit) temperatures through most of the week long event,” said coach Kevin Cornes. “But they showed tremendous resolve, dedication and sportsmanship throughout.”

The Delta Coastal Sting players are: Evalyn Drefko-Roberge, Samantha Kaltenegger, Sydney Cervi, Kylie Robertson, Taylor Russell, McKenna Milos-Johnson, Ravneet Sandhar, Mary Allworth, Allison Scanks, Meghan Lindsay, Skye Moore, Samantha Lundquist, Riley Moore, Stephanie Pak, Maarja von Schulmann and Jamie Cornes.
