Vancouver Whitecaps FC Women’s Team in FinalJuly 31, 2010 at 4:06 am | Posted in Whitecaps Season 2010 | Leave a comment
While I seldom write about the Women’s team it should be noted that this years team is excellent. They are on their way to a Championship final tomorrow against the Buffalo Flash. While the Women’s team does not draw as well as the mens team in attendance, it is who they draw that is important. The Women’s team fill Swangard with young girls who are inspired by watching their heroes play. The growth of Women’s soccer in Canada has been nothing short of incredible, and it is seldom you will meet a young girl who does not play the game now.
Competition among young women players who aspire to play for the Whitecaps women’s team is fierce, and only the top players can make it. From the games I have seen the standard of play is excellent and the player’s commitment to the game and to the Whitecaps is undeniable. If I had more time I would attend all of their games but if I saw both men’s and women’s games I would fear for my marriage!
I am confident the team will beat Buffalo tomorrow and bring home the trophy. When they come home , the Whitecaps women’s team should be celebrated as heroes.
Come on girls, you can do it!
