Berlin: Girls ODP Day 6

An early morning greeted us today as we prepared to depart for matches against Viktoria Berlin. The 03s played the first game against the U16 VB team and played a wonderful match with some attractive attacking play that led to a 5-1 win over their opponent. It was a consistent, competitive display both halves and the team looked like they had been playing together for months, not days. The 01s faced stiff competition in the VB women's 2nd division team as they got a taste of what professional level soccer in Germany is like. The opponent was organized and efficient and provided our girls a challenge they would not soon forget. Lunch was provided by the club as that afforded the girls the opportunity to mingle and chat with their opposition. After the match, we returned to our hotel and and then boarded the bus to central Berlin for a wonderful guided tour by the lovely tour guide.
Museum Island

She showed us Museum Island, the Telecom Tower, the Martin Luther Reformation Church, Checkpoint Charlie, and the Berlin Wall. A wonderful day of soccer and world history followed by a train ride back to the hotel to enjoy dinner and rest. A day off awaits the 01s while the 03s look to finish off the final match for our entire delegation on a high note.
