The Falls Church United U14 girls soccer team recently completed another fall season, which culminated with winning the Arlington Soccer Tournament. The team was the first ever U14 Division Girls Soccer Champions for the tournament, in which they dominated all four games they played with 17 goals scored and zero conceded.

The previous weekend, the team wrapped up an undefeated league season and captured another tournament championship in Manassas.

This is the fifth season for head coach Dennis Richter. The team is comprised of 17 girls who represent six different schools within Falls Church and Arlington. The majority of the players attend Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School.

Falls Church United will be joining Washington Area Girls Soccer for the spring 2016 season and the team is always looking for additional talent. Those who are interested can tryout for the team in January 2016. For more information, email
