WAGS Third Weekend Report
While the majority of the area's Washington Area Girls Soccer League games were canceled this weekend due to the impressive thunderstorms that came up from the south on Saturday, some teams managed to squeeze games in before the deluge hit.
High School Divisions
In High School Division 1, McLean Fusion won both of their matches against the Crofton Wolves and FC Virginia Courage. The two wins leave them undefeated this season, and all the rest of the squads will be hard-pressed to catch up in points.
No games were played in Division 2 or Under-19 Division 3.
U-19 Division 4 saw four matches on Sunday, with the Calverton Tornadoes tying SAC United Premier Azzuri 1-1, and SAC United I Lady Diplomats and DCST Blast also drawing, but 0-0.

PWSI Courage Red still remains on top of this leaderboard with 5 points, but with only a handful of matches played thus far, the competition is still wide open.
The 'match of the weekend' title falls to the U-12 Division 1 match between VSA Heat and the Bethesda Academy 98s. Playing on the turf at Long Park in Haymarket, Va., the Heat managed to squeak out a barnstorming 5-4 win over Bethesda, which gives them a solid 10 points in the division and the current lead.
