Over Labor Day Weekend, the NC Fusion Labor Day Shootout was celebrated and VA Rush’s 06 Boys Team were crowned champions. So far, so good. But the team had an ace up their sleeve: they won the tournament with FEMALE GK, Charlotte Burge.
Charlotte not only participated, but she also managed to keep a clean sheet. That’s right, she didn’t allow a single goal all weekend long! Mike Kappas, VA Rush’s GK Director, kindly offered to interview the player of the tournament.

A wonderful story that makes us proud, once again, of being part of The Rush. Congratulations Charlotte and VA Rush for you’ve re-written history!
