Wall Twp, NJ - The U11 Freedom Girls reached the NJYS National Championship Finals on Sunday, October 28th after winning their October 27th Semi-Final Match 4-0 vs TSF Academy.

The Finals did not disappoint any of the spectators with impressive play from both squads and edge of your seat action throughout regulation which ended in a 1-1 tie. PDA scored first in the 39th minute on a precise strike from just inside the 18. The Freedom answered in the 51st minute off a corner kick and a strong near post finish. PDA’s goal was the first and only goal the Freedom surrendered during the 2012 NJYS Cup. Off to two ten-minute overtimes and once again, action that did not disappoint with both teams threatening to score on several plays. The overtime periods produced no goals and the teams settled in for penalty kicks. Penalty kicks continued with exciting action including goalkeeper saves, crossbars, close misses and even a re-take after a goalkeeper left the line early. In the end, PDA won the match on penalty kicks by netting the last shot of the 5th round.
Congratulations to the Freedom on an incredible run!! It took 279 minutes of play and 5 opponents before the team surrendered a goal while outscoring the opposition 11-1.
