Rush Select Program: Italy Recap

The Rush Select Program’s 2005 Girls concluded its international trip to Italy with two games against Brescia.

The two Rush Select teams earned a 1-0 win and a 1-1 draw against the Northern Italian club. Emily Box (VA) and Katherine Sand (ID) scored for Rush Select on the day.

Earlier in the trip, the players faced Italian powerhouse AC Milan as well as Italian sides Real Meda and Atalanta. The group earned three wins, two draws, and two losses during the trip against international competition.

Other goal scorers against Italian opposition were Madelyn Clements-Mahlum (WI-West), Madison Mello (RI), and Kayla Sato (HI), who scored against Real Meda and AC Milan.

In addition to training and matches, the group saw AC Milan beat Chievo 3-2 at the San Siro and took in the sights in Como, Milan, Brescia, and Venice.

The players were able to spend time after the matches with their opponents, making new friends and experiencing another part of European football culture.

“The event was a huge success,” said Rush Select 2005 Girls Head Coach and Executive Director Nik Penn. He continued, “Soccer education, learning a new culture, and forming new bonds with friends and families from across the Rush Nation is something these players will never forget.”
