The BSC Vipers finished their 2012 spring season in the Cincinnati United Soccer League as Champions.

Playing for Beechmont Soccer Club, the Vipers went 6-0-1 for the season in CUSL Girls Division II. It was the team’s fifth undefeated league title in the past seven seasons.

By building on past successes and adding a few quality players to the roster, the 2012 spring season had plenty of promise for the Vipers.

Unfortunately, those dreams would be jeopardized with a handful of the team’s committed players deciding to quit before the season even started. The team stayed strong and resilient by recruiting determined and focused players and success followed.

These girls came together and in a short period of time and started playing high caliber soccer on a regular basis.

The Vipers would score 19 goals on the season, while allowing only five goals to be scored against.

As well as their CUSL championship, the Vipers also were finalists in the 2012 Mid-American Soccer Classic and semi-finalists in the 2012 Queen City Tournament.
