Our local Impact 05 Girls Green NPL team traveled down to Southern California, the weekend of August 25th - 26th, to compete in the North Huntington Beach (NHB) tournament. The NHB Cup is one of the oldest and most prestigious youth soccer tournaments in Southern California. This year marked the 40th edition of this tournament, drawing top teams from across California and neighboring states.
Our Impact 05 Girls Green NPL team opened with a 4-0 win against South Slammers FC, followed by a 1-1 battle against the Pateadores. In a must win game, our girls powered through NHB FC 2-0, securing a shot for the title against Villa FC. In the Final match, 10 minutes into the second half, Hailey Garvin intercepted a pass and connected it to Brianna Lubecky, who sent a beautifully timed cross over to Briana Alvarado to masterfully find the back of the net - making it 1-0. The girls battled another 20 minutes before the final whistle blew, securing the NHB Cup Championship!!!
All players had opportunities to start this tournament and all contributed significantly to securing this championship. We are so proud of these amazing girls!
