Weekend Update May 4-5The rain stayed away just long enough for us to get most of our matches in over the weekend. NRU colors stretched all over the state with our teams playing anywhere from local league games to State Cup matches in VA Beach and northern Virginia. BRSL teams:U11G

The U11 Girls went down 2-0 in the first half and the
opponents quickly got a third at the start of the second half but the girls
battled back and dominated the final 15 minutes of the game. They had a lot of
chances during that time and Ellie Gresh and Grace Sallee both found the back
of the net within the final 10 minutes. Given ...

Skyline Team who won their second round game of the VYSA State Cup tournament
this weekend to advance to the Elite 8.NRU traveled to Ashburn on Saturday to take on the ODFC Force. NRU did a

close-in shot late in the first half. NRU dominated much of the second half, but

Weekend Update April 27-28BRSL teams:U11G
NRU-Salem Sabres 4:1 After
a fairly evenly matched first half, NRU took control in the second half and
rolled to a pretty comfortable 4-1 win. Scoring was pretty even with NRU's 4
goals spread amongst 3 different players. The girls’ goals came from a variety
of ways, breakaway, connecting through the box, put back off of a fumbled save,
and a solid strike. The
opponents attacking line was a lot faster than what the girls have seen all
season but the team did a great job of having a 2nd defender ready
and, after talking about it at halftime, pretty much neutralized the Sabres’
speed in the attack. Both goal keepers saw ...

Players of the Week April 20-21
This week’s Player of the Week awards go to Eliza Stowe of
the U13 Girls and Mehmet Dilek of the U11 Boys Skyline team. Eliza's extra work at the goalkeeper
position is starting to show and pay dividends for the NRU U13 Girls, having
allowed only two goals in the four Skyline matches to date. Her training
over the winter and early spring has helped her improve tremendously at the
goalkeeper position, and her team-first attitude has always drawn raves reviews
from coaches and teammates alike. Mehmet
had a hat trick this weekend against CVU.His goals helped the boys secure a 7-1 in on the weekend.Congrats to the both of them.

Weekend Update April 20-21A great weekend for soccer all around! We had teams playing in State Cup once again as well as local rivalries. It was a great weekend for NRU once again as we came away with some fantastic results!BRSL teams:U11G
NRU-Radford SC 1:0The U11 Girls only had 7 players due to
last minute illnesses and family commitments, so played down one player for the
entire game. Despite this, the girls came away with a 1-0 victory. The team
played well, attacking both from the back and along the flanks. There were a
lot of great plays, both off the dribble and through combination play, to beat
the defense down the line, finishing it off with ...
