Congratulations to the U11 boys for winning their division of the Weston Cup and Showcase! The boys won the tournament in a thrilling penalty kick shootout against Team Boca. 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.

U9 Girls - Weston Cup

image_name2
Congratulations to the U9 Girls Blue team for reaching the Finals of the 2015 Weston Tournament in the Silver Division. 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. While they did not prevail in those final two games, the girls showed just how far they have come, half the team new to competitive soccer, since August. 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.
