The Chantilly Storm won the Premier Gold Bracket of the 2013 Virginian Memorial Day tournament. The Storm breezed through their group, comprised of Steel Town Magic, Vienna Patriots Red, and Stafford Revolution Blue. Scoring 5 times and only conceding once, they won all 3 games while no other team in the group managed to win more than once.
Advancing to Monday’s final the team was set to face a solid Maryland Rush side who had also won all 3 games with the exact same number of goals scored and allowed through the preliminary round. The Storm were up for the challenge and played their best game of the weekend. Fluid in the attack throughout, the team was able to create many chances and the scoreline would’ve been very lopsided were it not for the heroics of the opposing goalie. Those saves would run out by the penalty shootout tiebreaker after regulation, as the Storm put all their chances away to clinch the title.
Congratulations to the Storm for a fantastic weekend at the 2013 Virginian!
