The group of girls who form the Eastside FC 95 White soccer squad have tasted unprecedented success over the course of the 2013 season.
First came a strong regular season in which the 18-and-under club went 10-3-1 and outscored its opponents 30-6.
Many of the players had been with coach Ryan Dortch since they were 11, but none of them had hoisted a state-championship trophy. That changed when Eastside FC obliterated the opposition at the Virginia Mason Washington Youth Soccer Challenge Cup. Their offense erupted for 27 goals over seven games.
