Natalie enjoyed her first tournament with her new traveling soccer team, the Varder East Benders. They won the U9 girls Rush Kickoff Tournament in Northfield MI. this weekend posting a 4-0 record. This was Natalie's first time playing at such a high competition level and as a new member of an experienced team. Natalie scored 3 goals in the opening game of the tournament. Her friend Megan was the MVP of the final game a 3-2 thriller. Her entire team is extremely talented. The 90 degree heat and very high humidity added to the challenge. Nice Work Natalie!
