U12 Girls- Receive Finalist medals at the Palm Beach Cup

image_name2
Congratulations Ft. Lauderdale Select U12 girls for a very successful Palm Beach Cup. After breezing through their first game in pool play winning 4-1 against the 66th ranked team in the state, the team showed their true medal against the 24th ranked team in the state. Despite the difference in size and weight of their opponent, they showed their skill and strength of character in a very physical game which they dominated despite allowing a late tying goal. Nursing injuries and aches they won their final pool game to advance to the finals. With very little left in the tank and lingering injuries, the team played with quality and heart in the finals but could not overcome the physical nature of the game. The coaches and parents are extremely proud of these valiant players and know that they have a very bright future.

U9 Girls Blue Team Wins South Florida Cup

image_name2
The U9 Girls Blue Team won the South Florida Cup by playing some of their best soccer to date. After winning 7-0, 5-2 and 5-1 in group play, the girls faced an undefeated team in the Final. Even controlling the game throughout the first half, they were only up 1-0 at halftime. At halftime we discussed how we needed to keep possessing the same way but needed more penetration in the final third of the field. Boy did they deliver! 5 great goals in the second half was the result of excellent passing and ball movement, including through balls and give-and-gos, which inevitably wore down our opponents. We moved the ball from side to side, passed back to defenders, switched the point of attack, crossed balls to correctly-positioned teammates and were direct to goal when appropriate, all while defending intelligently and with solid goalkeeping. A truly dominating performance in the second half as the girls prevailed 6-0. Congratulations Blue Team (Ade, Ashtyn, Caroline, Genesis, Jade, Lily, Samantha and Violet) on a well-deserved first tournament championship!

The team has had many close defeats in previous tournaments and were determined not to let this one slip away. The final was everything you could ask for in a youth soccer game with great fan support from the team parents and players who came out to celebrate, parents who were respectful of the referees and kids who played their heart out for each other and completely bought into the life lesson that if you play selflessly and work as a team you will have success.

Winning two of their three group games over Weston and Wellington, they then faced a Division 1 team in their third game and again in the Final.

They showed good passing and movement, as well as smart defending and quality goalkeeping. Plus, in what can only be described as an extremely physical Final, the girls were tough throughout and fought hard. Congratulations to Ashtyn, Gabriella, Genesis, Jade, Lily, Samantha, Valentina and Violet. Your coach is very proud.

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!!!

In the final, Lexi B. scored the winning penalty kick and goalie Taylor D. stopped three penalty shots to close out the win. Taylor was awarded the Most Valuable Player trophy presented by the West Pines Kickoff Classic.

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.
