The North Branch U13 girls soccer team won the 2013 River Cup tournament in Hudson, Wis., over the weekend of May 18 and 19.

In the first game, the girls beat Big Lake 3-0. Also on Saturday was the second game, versus the Arsenal X-treme team, and the girls once again played well on both offense and defense to win 3-1.

On Sunday, North Branch faced Lakeville in an evenly matched game, but the girls came away with a 1-0 victory. While the championship game against Big Lake was canceled due to a thunderstorm, the North Branch girls were declared the champions since they were the only team to go undefeated in its bracket.

The U13 girls team is having a great year so far improving both offensively and defensively. Its record is three wins and a tie in league play as of June 10.
