Facing some stiff competition from North Carolina teams, Columbia United 97 Girls Blue went on to win the Finalist trophy at the 4th Annual FCCA Carolina Fall Challenge November 11, 2007 in Concord, NC. With an opening game loss to a superb South Charlotte team, the girls regrouped and went on to play some of their best soccer yet against teams from Boone, NC and Matthews, NC to make it to the Championship Game. They rallied well against the South Charlotte team they had played earlier, holding them scoreless and disrupting much of their attack for large periods of the game, supported by some outstanding work by goalkeeper Charlotte Dover. In the end, though, South Charlotte played great soccer and earned the victory. Congratulations to the girls for their wonderful effort and continued success on the road!
