Congratulations to Gabriela Loza of the LMVSC Patriots 2003 Girls White, our LMVSC Travel Player of the Week.
Competing in the prestigious WAGS Showcase tournament this past weekend, Coach Vincent Vergamini and the LMVSC Patriots 2003 Girls White faced tough opposition, playing up against other club’s top teams. In all 3 games, Gabriela was voted as the “MVP” of the game by the opposition coach for her numerous saves and steadying influence in the back.
On Saturday, Gabriela made countless saves as the Virginia Legacy team piled on the pressure in the 2nd half looking to break the deadlock. Sunday’s game was a repeat performance with multiple top class saves. Monday’s game, facing the most physical team, Gabriela was stellar in coming out to collect the ball on the edges of her box as opposition forwards were trying to get on the end of through balls.
According to Coach Vincent, “Gabi has been stellar all season but has elevated her game to another level this past weekend. Despite the enormous pressure of being in a big event, and in facing the toughest opponents we’ve seen all season, Gabi seemed to feed off the pressure and really rose to the occasion.”
Gabriela was forced off with 20 mins left in the Monday game with a concussion. Despite this, she was still recognized as the “MVP” by the opposition coach.
Speedy recovery Gabi and congrats on an amazing weekend!
