Sabrina Macias and Morgan Stanton of the Colorado Rush were both recently named to the ECNL All-Event team for the event held in Frisco, Texas in late February. All event teams are based on nominations from coaches and scouts at the event judging both individual and team performance.
Sabrina, goalkeeper for the U16 Nike team, was named to the team after helping her team to ties against Dallas Sting and D'Feeters Soccer Club. Sabrina caught the attention of scouts with her play, but also with her face! In the game against Sting, while making a save, Sabrina was kicked in the face and had a black eye she couldn't open the rest of the event! (check out the Colorado Rush Facebook page from Feb 23 to see it!)
Morgan, midfielder for the U18 Nike team, led the team to two wins and a tie against a strong trio of Texas clubs. Morgan scored twice in the 4-0 win over Lonestar and ran the show in the middle of the park against Dallas Sting in a 1-0 Rush win and a 0-0 draw with D'Feeters.
