Today marks the start of the Women’s Premier League National Championships in Glendale, Colorado and the Furies have already been on the ground for 24 hours adjusting
to the altitude and putting in their last minutes of preparation before their first match of the tournament. The Furies will play in the bottom bracket alongside Oregon, Atlanta and San Diego, to vie for 5th place overall.
After a season dedicated to development and re-building, having lost several players just last year, the Furies finally began to find their footing in week 5 against the Harlequins where they tied 0-0. The Furies used their momentum to come up with a big win against New York the following week. Now finally starting to find their rhythm the Furies are ready to keep up the intensity and come home with the 5th place title.
The first match-up will take place today against the Oregon Sports Union at 5PM EST (3PM MT). The winner of this contest will head to the 5th-6th place match on Sunday while the loser heads to the 7th-8th place match. Weather is sure to be a factor this weekend with lows in the 20s and 30s in Denver. Luckily for the Furies, they have practiced in every type of weather this season and their hands, feet and minds are ready to take on anything.
