Congratulations to the BAC Blitz!

Final game information from the US Youth Soccer website:

In a tight 16U Girls final between BAC Blitz (VA) and Westside Breakers 01 Blue (CA-S), a lone penalty kick goal separated the two sides at the final whistle. Neither team could score a goal in the first half, but both teams worked hard at creating viable opportunities to take the lead. Blitz took the lead midway through the second half when it drew a penalty kick. Virginia Delacruz stepped up and finished her opportunity, giving the Virginia side the lead. Westside tried to tie the game late, but saw its long shot attempt sail over the top of the bar. The Blitz offense kept on the pressure late, thwarting any dangerous chances from Breakers. The final whistle blew and the 1-0 advantage earned BAC Blitz the 16U Girls National Presidents Cup title.

Tournament MVP:

Ginny Delacruz was named MVP player of the tournament!

Lightning Safety

Each year in the United States, more than four hundred people are struck by lightning. On average, about 70 people are killed and many others suffer permanent neurological disabilities. Most of these tragedies can be avoided if proper precautions are taken. When thunderstorms threaten, coaches and sports officials must not let the desire to start or complete an athletic activity hinder their judgment when the safety of participants and spectators is in jeopardy.

Burke AC is committed to the safety of all of our players, coaches, and spectators.
 
Therefore, if a coach or referee hears thunder or sees lightning, fields are immediately closed and all play should be immediately suspended and everyone should get to a safe place. Fields shall remain closed for 30 minutes from the last thunder you hear or lightning you see.
 
For more information on lightning, please see this document from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration: Lightning Saftey Document
