These four girls were just teammates on the field at first but have since changed to best friends. Being able to play a sport that they love with their best friends is one of the most memorable experiences of their lives.

Throughout the game, the girls played with heart and class. The game challenged them to step up to and show people what they were made of.
In the end, their team ended up losing, but it was a well-fought game. The girls were proud of what they had accomplished.
