Girls' football team ridiculed for entering boys' league silence critics by winning it | The Independent
The girls of AEM Lleida, in Spain, so dominated the girls' leagues in their area that team bosses signed them up for competition against boys.
Two seasons later they got their hands on the winners' trophy, with top scorer Andrea Gomez netting 38 times, the New York Timesreported. The team lost just once in 22 games, AEM said on a fundraising website, and the girls were declared champions four games before the end of the season.
