in Durham United F.C.'s title-winning season in the women's division.

Both George and Abolins were named to both mid- and end-of-season first team all-star lists after earning their 
respective teams the best defensive records in the men's and women's section.

George only gave up 16 goals in 22 league matches for a 0.72 GAA, while Abolins mere eight goals against 
in 18 league matches registered a remarkable 0.44 GAA. 

Both George and Abolins came to League1 with tremendous pedigree.

2012-2014 in Canada, and in Hungary with second division Csakvar F.C. 

Abolins finished her NCAA career in 2013 ranked 25th in the nation with a 0.68 GAA. She is also 25th in the 
NCAA all-time goalkeeping record books after earning 33 shutouts between 2010-2013 for University 
of Detroit-Mercy and University of Western Kentucky.
