Tennessee SC 17 attended the Concorde-Fire Challenge Cup in the Atlanta, GA area the weekend of February 16-17. This was TSC 17 first event of the spring season and they started the season by winning the championship of the Champions Division. For their first game Saturday, TSC 17 played BUSA 99 ECNL, the 2012 AL state champions, and won 1-0. In their second game, TSC 17 played United FA 99 Red (GA) and won 3-0. On Sunday, TSC 17 played Concorde-Fire ECNL, the 2012 GA state semi-finalists, and tied 1-1 in a very hard fought and well played game. Concorde-Fire had a 1-0 lead at halftime and TSC 17 tied the game late in the 2nd half.  With the tie to Concorde-Fire, TSC 17 advanced to the championship game against CSA ECNL U14, the 2012 North Carolina state champions. In the finals, neither team could find the back of the net with both teams defense stepping it up whenever the other team had scoring opportunities.  On the final play of regulation, TSC 17 was able to finally score on a free kick set piece outside the box with the whistle blowing shortly after the ball hitting the back of the net. TSC 17 won the game 1-0 in a very exciting final.  For the tournament, TSC 17 went undefeated, scored 6 goals, and allowed 1. Congratulations Coach and girls!
