"It was fantastic to host the games against Challenge on our new, state-of-the-art turf fields in The Woodlands. There are many ways to measure our progress in the ECNL both from an individual player and team development standpoint. But anytime we win three out of five games in an ECNL fixture, we must congratulate all of the players for their hard work in training and setting the right mentality across the program." Andy Squire, Director of Coaching ECNL
Texas Rush Soccer Club would also like to congratulate Briana Woodall and Emily Alvarado who have been called into Mexico's U17 National Team Camp starting on Friday. This camp serves as final preparation for the U17 World Cup Qualifying event to be held in Jamaica next month in which both players have aspirations of competing in. Good luck ladies!
