MILWAUKIE, OR (KPTV) – On the heels of the U.S. women’s national team claiming a fourth World Cup title, a pair of local clubs are striving for more cups of their own.
Oregon United FC serves up a united front. On one side of the practice pitch, it’s the four-time state champion girls and on the other, it’s the back-to-back regional champion boys.
“Awakening. It’s really eye-opening to see what it’s like from this side of the podium,” said Ali Nadalsky, St. Mary’s Academy junior.
The U16 OUFC clubs are all about the hardware.
“That’s been one of our goals, just back to back, to back to back. Winning is awesome,” said Jesuit High School junior Maddy Koleno.
