TAMPA – Annah Lindberg was named the Super Y League championship most valuable player on Tuesday after leading the U13 Northern Virginia Majestics to the North American Championship.
Lindberg scored two goals in the Majestics’ 3-1 victory over the Pennsylvania Rage, while Jewel Christian also tallied a goal.

The championship performance capped a 17-0-0 season for the Majestics in their first Super Y season.

It is the third national title for the Majestics program, following titles by the U18 squad in 2001 and the U19 team in 2005.

A cross from Ashley Skertic set up Christian’s goal to give Northern Virginia the early lead. Fif-teen minutes later, Maggie Chapman sent a corner kick into the Rage penalty area, setting up the first goal from Lindberg and a 2-0 halftime advantage.

On the final goal, Chapman sent a pass into the left corner of the box on a crisp pass along the ground. Lindberg collected the ball in full stride a rocketed her shot untouched into the Rage goal.
The Majestics were one of four unbeaten teams in the U13 girls bracket.

They posted the lone perfect 3-0-0 record in group play, including a 2-0 result against the previously undefeated Kings Soccer Academy (Cincinnati). After topping Coquitlam SC (British Columbia) 4-0 on the second day of play, Northern Virginia won a hard fought 2-0 result over the Washington Freedom to ad-vance into the semifinals.

The Majestics finished group play without giving up a goal and continued their tournament shutout downing Coastal WFC 3-0 in the semifinal match.

“After seeing a large amount of talent at all age groups throughout the weekend, I think the best term to describe our U13s is poise,” said club general manager Tim Schweitzer. “This special group of young ladies plays a very stylish and creative game, never appearing hurried or rattled.

“They are highly entertaining and truly a pleasure to watch.”
