The Winslow-based U18 girls travel soccer team recently traveled to San Marino, Italy, with Gary Walker and All Pro Soccer Tours to participate in the San Marino Soccer Cup. The team had a truly amazing experience!

The U18 team is made up of 18 players from 12 different central Maine high schools, competing against teams from all over the world.

The team advanced from their bracket in group play having won all three games. They went on to win the quarter final game against a team from Canada and then won their semi-final game against an Italian team. Having advanced to the final game, they beat FCF Como 2000 Italy, a regional championship team from Italy, to win the overall championship.

The Winslow team defeated, Milton Magic, Canada, 2-1; ImoleseF & M ACD, Italy, 2-0; King City United, Canada, 1-0; CSR D. Azalee, Italy, 5-3, on penalty kicks; and FCF Como 2000, Italy, 1-0, in the championship game.
