Banat 96Gs Roll On As Every Player Looks Forward to College Soccer

The Banat 96 Girls Gold, one of the most successful teams in the club's history and one of the most consistent teams in their generation, remain undefeated in the 2014 Arizona State Championships. Since the team's inception, the Banat 96 Girls have been semifinalists virtually ever year, and finished as runners-up twice. And in their final campaign, they reached the semi-finals yet again with wins over San Tan and Flagstaff and earning a draw versus current champions TSA. The team will play AZ Arsenal in a semi-final match this Saturday at 11am in Casa Grande. All 16 of the current Banat 96 girls roster will be headed off to play college soccer -- a tremendous achievement for the team.
