Two Arizona Youth Soccer Organization girls teams from the Verde Valley won big at the one of the most well attended Arizona soccer tournaments.
The U12 Verde Valley Bad Girls and the U10 Verde Valley Green Extreme both won the gold medals in their respective divisions at the 23rd annual Cactus Classic Tournament in Gilbert, March 2 and 3, after dominating runs to the finals.
The Verde Valley Bad Girls faced the Alliance from Region 688 in game one, a team it had never seen before. It won 2-0 with goals by Ava Scarbrough of Sedona and Tyra Smith of Camp Verde. In their second game, the girls beat the Bandits from Region 225, 6-1. Scarbrough had three goals and Smith, Jacki King, of Sedona, and Rylie Burke, of Cottonwood, each scored a goal.
