Girls Finished Fall Season 31-5-3

Updated Monday January 7, 2013 by Amherst Youth Soccer Association.

Amherst Youth Soccer was in the spotlight in Monday's Morning Journal with the story of the Amherst Strikers(U9 Girls) and their 2012 National Indoor Championships Regional Title won last December in North Olmsted. 

The story, which you can check out HERE, featured quotes from some of the girls and Head Coach John Bena.

“Team success starts with the parents being committed to what we’re trying to do, and then the girls feed off that and work just as hard,” Bena said. “They’re a lot tougher than I was when I was their age. They’re a very tough group, they have a great work ethic and they’re awesome to coach.”
