BFC Flames 98 Boys had a very good showing in the Premier bracket at Disney Memorial Day Tourney.

Our BFC Boys 98 had an extremely good showing in the top bracket at the 2008 Disney Memorial Day tournament. Although the boys began the competition a bit slow, they ended up playing their best soccer of the entire season in the final two games of the tournament. The BFC boys in blue started the weekend's competition playing against the Wellington Wave. They were battling in a 1-1 draw, when Wellington broke through to score 2 quick goals in the first half. There were no goals in the 2nd half, so BFC narrowly lost by a 1-3 score.

The 2nd match of the tournament squared BFC versus Coastal Georgia Soccer Association. In arguably one of the most exciting Under 10 soccer matches, both teams battled and fought relentlessly to score goals. Both teams hit the posts and crossbar on numerous occassions, however, it was BFC that found the back of the net for the lone goal of the match. The boys in blue prevailed by a 1-0 score.

In the 3rd match of the tourney, BFC had to go head to head against the Red and Black from Doral. This match resembled a Chelsea FC vs. AC Milan battle, and both teams played as if it truly were a Champions League match. BFC's boys came out extremely strong in the 1st half and found the back of the net on numerous occassions. So much in fact that it had the Doral parents wondering, "Where is this Brandon from?" By the 2nd water break BFC had mounted a 3-0 lead. Doral was by no means done however. The boys in Red and Black battled and battled and fought their way back to 3-2. Both teams traded goals in the final 5 minutes and Chelsea (BFC) prevailed with a hard fought 4-3 victory!

It was a tremendous end to a fantastic season, congratulations Brandon FC's boys in blue!

BFC 98 Boys Finish in 2nd place in entire Region C

The Brandon Football Club U10 boys have had an outstanding season, even prior to this weekend's results. This weekend they proved, once again, that they are one of the top U10 teams in the entire region. On Saturday they played a very, very good Clearwater Chargers team. Clearwater had walked through the preliminary round of Region Cup. In a very explosive first half, both BFC and Clearwater traded scoring goals en route to a 3-3 halftime tie. In the 2nd half the BFC boys tightened up defensively and scored the only goal during the 2nd half and won, 4-3.

On Sunday, BFC faced a strong and determined HCU team for the Regional Championship. After conceding only a 1st half penalty kick goal, BFC trailed 0-1 at the halftime break. HCU pulled away in the 2nd, scoring 3 very nice goals to go up, 4-0. However, our BFC boys never gave up. They scored two outstanding goals late, the 1st was off a beautiful through ball from the left outside midfielder, and the 2nd was after the right outside midfielder made a magnificent run and battled past the defender to send a cross in. HCU got a very late goal to secure the 5-2 win over our BFC boys in blue.

A second place finish in the entire region is something that our boys should be extremely proud of. They have battled tremendously through every match this entire season. Congratulations boys on a job well done.

The 98 Boys had a tremendous outing in this years Disney President's Day Tournament. The competition was very tough and it was great to see our boys respond the way that they did. It is quite amazing to see that the boys have played multiple matches in 3 consecutive weeks, and are still playing at the level that they currently are. Playing with only 1 substitute for the entire weekend, the boys played through 5 tough matches, winning 3, tieing 1 and losing just 1.
