The Millville Panthers U-11 Girls Soccer team won their division of the 11th Annual Vineland Memorial Day Tournament. The Panthers defeated a very good Upper Bucks Select B team. To get to the final game, the Panthers defeated Upper Township 4-1, Deptford Demolition 6-0, Atlantic United 5-0, Vineland Crusaders 2-0 and the Final game was 4-2.

The Panthers offense was provided by Sara Copare with 6 goals, Tara Davis with 5, and Julie Romanik with 4. Scoring support was provided by Kaitlyn Andres, Tiffany Morgan, and Sam Ney. The Panthers defensive was provided be Corey Kavanagh and LeAnn Burns in the middle, while Kim Sharpless frustrated opposing offenses at the sweeper position. Alyssa Reif provided a spark at wing with 4 shots on goal.

Only 3 goals were given up in 5 games. Much of this due to the Goalie play of Donja Steward and Nicki Singiser. Due to illness, Christina Sheppard provide heat relief on the sidelines.
