Frank Workman on Sports: Do the Scots have what it takes to win the championship?

The Shorecrest girls' soccer team takes the field at Shoreline Stadium Friday night at 6 against the Ridgefield Spudders, in the first of two 2A semi-final games.

After a roller-coaster ride of a back-and-forth 4-3 quarter-final win over Liberty last Saturday, deemed by many in attendance as the most exciting game they'd ever seen, and a week's anticipation building up to Friday's game, six o'clock can't come soon enough for the team and its fans.

The question on everyone's mind --- do the Scots have what it takes to win the championship?

What, exactly, are the attributes of championship teams?

Championship teams are unselfish. They don't care who gets the credit as long as the team succeeds.

Championship teams are ferocious. They don't just win the individual battles, they dominate them.

Championship teams are focused. They play each play with their minds on only that play, not the prize that awaits them.

And championship teams are confident. A confidence that is earned over the summer when captains led voluntary conditioning drills, out of the public eye, trying to impress nobody.

The question, again .... do the Scots have the attributes of a championship team?

You're damned right they do.
