Bermudian footballer Nia Christopher and her Premier Navy 2001 Under 18 Girls Teammates are the 2019 US Youth Soccer National Championships Under 18 Girls Champions after winning the finals on Sunday.

The report in the official website said, “After coming up short last year in the semifinals, Premier Navy 2001 [MD] claimed the 18U Girls National Championship with a 2-1 win over 01 Lady Lobos Rush Premier [TN] in Sunday’s final. Premier Navy generated pressure throughout the early portion of the match and took a lead in the 12th minute.

“Madison Carr got to a flicked on cross from the left wing and hammered a left-footed shot high and past the keeper to put the Maryland side in front. Carr netted her second goal of the game later in the half to put Premier Navy in control.

“However, Elizabeth Slavinsky pulled a goal back for the Lady Lobos in the 75th minute — causing some anxious moments in the final quarter-hour of play for Premier Navy. The Maryland side managed to fend off the late push from Lady Lobos to secure the 2-1 win and National title.”
