These Are Their Stories
Parkview High School
2016: GHSA State Championship
Parkview boys had made it to the State Finals against Milton High School. The game was dead even for 100 minutes (here, high school only plays 40 minute halves) and they were going to Penalty kicks. Our goalkeeper, Austin Lu, shined by stopping 2 penalty kicks to win Parkview their State Title. *(in the semi-finals match against Alpharetta High School Parkview was losing 1-0. With seconds left in the game (not an exaggeration) Alpharetta's goalkeeper fouled the Parkview forward in the box, and with .9 seconds left on the clock a penalty was awared to Parkview. Parkview won that game in penalty kicks to advance to the final).
Parkview High School
2018: GHSA State Championship
Parkview girls had made it to the State Finals against rival, Milton High School, who had knocked out Parkview girls the previous year. 20 minutes into the first half, the Milton forward ran past our defensive line-- it was a one v one with our goalkeeper, Sara Halilhodzic. The Milton forward rocketed the ball hip height to Sara's right side. With fantastic reactions, Sara shot out her hand in a beautiful dive and saved the shot long enough for her defense to recover. Milton's attack withered after that chance and Parkview went on to win 2-0 in regulation
2019: ECNL National Championship
It was a hot day in Richmond, Virginia at the ECNL National Finals where GSA was playing a dangerous PDA team(out of New Jersey). The score was 1-0 to GSA when, in the 30th minute, the PDA right winger ran down the line, and, 20 yards out, hit a ball that was sailing into the right upper 90 of the goal. Our goalkeeper, Katie Oakley, tracked the ball across her goal, and at the last minute climbed as high as she could in a jump and tipped the ball out (this technique is very difficult at the youth level). For the rest of the game, Katie was exemplary in how she distributed the ball and managed crosses into her box. Katie weathered that storm and made club history by helping her team bring home the first National Title to a Southeastern team since the formation of the league.
