U16/17 Boys - Plantation Thanksgiving Tournament



U17 Boys Plantation tournament

We decided to combine our U15/16/17 boys into one team for the Thanksgiving tournament. We knew this would be a challenge for the younger boys but we decided to try it. When the tournament let us know that they only had a spot in the U18/19 section it gave the coaches a real reason to pause. We decided that our boys were up to the challenge and entered them into the oldest devision of the tournament. That meant our boys aged mostly 15 and 16 had to play U19 teams.

The boys overcame their nerves in the group games and went unbeaten in three games. We won two games and tied the third while beating the number 21 ranked team in U18 in Florida along the way.

We then played a very good U19 team in the semi final and struggled against the wind and the offensive pressure created by the other team and were down 4-0 at the half. The coaches challenged the boys to respond in the second half and THEY DID!!!!!! We landed up scoring 3 goals in a span of ten minutes after the second water break and pushed hard for the equalizer. We landed up losing 4-3 but the boys should be proud of their performance all weekend.

There were many highlights of the weekend and besides the great comeback attached are links to two of the great moments. The first is an amazing goal off a flying bicycle kick from Elvis Montes and the second is another great penalty save from our goalie Jesus Lares.

Again….well done boys …you made us proud!!!

U9 Girls Blue Team Finish Second at West Pines Tournament

The U9 Girls Blue Team were runners up in the Classic Black division of the West Pines Tournament. After strong victories over Wellington and Miami Beach, they fell to Boynton Beach Knights but made it to the Final due to goal differential being the tie breaker. Credit must also go to the U9 Girls White Team who, by beating Wellington in their final game, created a 3-way tie for second place in the group stage which changed the tie-breaker from head-to-head to goal differential, allowing the Blue Team to go to the Final. In the Final, the Blue Team played well and hard, a sure sign of continued success in the future.
