The Eagles are an under-14 girls select soccer team with players from Brown, Highland, Clermont and Hamilton Counties. The team completed their final season of play for the Beechmont Soccer Club.

The fall season opened with the girls coming home as Champions in the Dog Days tournament. They followed that title with another finals appearance later in the season and a third place finish in league play. The spring season also included very successful run, as the Eagles were tournament finalists twice and went undefeated in league play, finishing second, going 3-0-3 in the top division of the Cincinnati United Soccer League.

The girls posted three shutouts and allowed just three goals during the spring season, tying them for best in the division in goals allowed. No team scored more than a single goal in any game.

Tournament play had only two opponents who would register more than two goals in any one match over the past year.

In eight tournament appearances over the past year, against some stiff competition from throughout the region, the girls came home as champions once, runners up three times, third once and fourth once. Only twice did they fail to place in the top four.

The team started five years ago as an under-10 team in division nine and made it all the way to the top division of the league. After completing their freshman season with their respective high school teams in the fall, the team will move over to Passion FC and begin play in the Buckeye Premier League for spring 2016.
