West Pasco Junior Showcase
Monday, April 27
Brandon FC U11 Boys are "Fun to Watch" in West Pasco U12 Tourney

The B.F.C. U11 boys entered the West Pasco Junior Showcase this weekend a little uncertain of what to expect. Not only were the boys playing up an age group, but they were also playing in a format quite new to them. In an effort to start preparing for next year's 11 v 11 CDL grouping, BFC entered the U12 11 v 11 bracket at West Pasco. They were grouped with U12 teams West Pasco Black (USA D3), Nature Coast (USA D2) and HCU (CDL League Champions).

On Saturday the boy's played extremely well through both matches. They defeated Nature Coast, 2-0 in the morning and then West Pasco Black, 7-1 in the afternoon. The boys played 140 minutes of soccer on Saturday in 86 degree temps, in addition to playing on a bigger field with a larger ball.

Since the HCU team had also won both of their matches on Saturday, it meant that the Sunday morning match between BFC and HCU was a true semi-final. It was certainly a tremendous match. Both teams battled throughout the 70 minutes. HCU held a distinct possession advantage throughout the 1st half, however, the BFC boys were not rattled and controlled a good portion of the 2nd half. After several good scoring chances by the boy's in blue, HCU countered on a quick break and narrowly slid one over the line to take a 1-0 lead. The BFC boys continued to battle, but just couldn't gain the equalizing goal. There were heroic plays made by BFC players all over the field; the keeper making outstanding stops, defenders diving to save certain goals, midfielders fighting and battling to maintain possession and forwards working hard to get off the shots.

Several coaches, and even referees, paid tremendous compliments to our U11 boys for all their effort. The most flattering comments made were that our boy's displayed outstanding character and that they were "fun to watch."

BFC 98 Boys have an outstanding 3 week run in February!

The Brandon FC U10 Boys have played tremendous soccer this entire season, however, none was better than the 3 weeks to end the season. On February 2nd and 3rd, they closed out their USA regular season. They were tied by Central Pasco, 2:2, and then on the final day of the regular season they clinched the championship with a narrow 4:3 win against a very good Player's Club team.

On the following weekend, February 9th and 10th, the 98 Boys traveled to Wesley Chapel for the first round of the FYSA Region C Cup. They played 3 unbelievable games in defeating Countryside, 4:0, East Pasco, 7:1, and Braden River, 5:0. With those three victories they earned a birth into the FYSA Region C Cup Final Four.

Then, on President's Day weekend, the 98 Boys in Blue, traveled to Orlando to take on some stiff competition at the Disney President's Day Tournament. In 3 days the boys had to play 5 matches, and they did this the entire time with only 1 substitute. They defeated Ormond Beach 5:0, Orange County 5:2 and tied Sarasota 4:4 in the preliminary round. They defeated Braden River 6:1 in the semi-final and finally lost to a superior CFU team 1:4 in the Championship match.

In a 3 week period, the BFC 98 boys compiled a record of:

7 Wins, 2 Ties, and 1 Loss, scoring 43 goals, while allowing just 17 goals!

Congratulations BFC 98 Boys in indeed have the passion...the passion that unites us all!
