GREENWICH, Conn. -- A valiant effort fell just short this past weekend as the Beachside Soccer Club U-13 girls team was defeated in its first-ever trip to the Premier Division One state finals in Farmington. Oakwood netted the game's only goal in the 72nd minute to edge Beachside, 1-0.
Treloara Harrison and Callie Doyle played well for Beachside, putting a couple shots on net, but were denied. Despite the loss, Beachside is primed to make another run at the finals next spring.
