The Windham girls’ U14 soccer team won the Falmouth Fall Classic Tournament for the third year in a row. They played Coldbrook (ranked number 2 in the state) at Falmouth High School on Monday, October 8. Each year Windham has gone into this tournament, they have been ranked number 1 in the state and this year was no exception. To get into this championship game, Windham beat Kennebunk, Falmouth and Cumberland.

For the entire tournament the girl’s offense was more than powerful getting 22 goals in four games.
The girls dominated in typical fashion against Colbrook. They had control early on. Windham’s defense was so strong they only allowed two shots near their net the entire game and Windham controlled offensively, most of the game.

In addition to winning the Falmouth Fall Classic three years in a row, this U14 team is back to back state and New England Invitational champions. Coach Matt Bell says this may be one of the most dominant travel teams this state has ever had.

The girls will play at Willow Drive in Berwick for the next two games, against Scarborough and Marshwood, on Saturday, October 20 at noon and 4 p.m.

“This team has been dominant for the last three years,” says Coach Matt Bell.  “It’s their work ethic that sets them apart.  But it’s not just one girl.  They all push themselves to be the best every day.  During practice they are supportive of each other and try and grow as a team.  They continue to win because they play as a team and rely on each other. Coach Jason Dakin and I cannot believe how hard these girls work every day.”
