Our BFC boy's had a tremendous run at the Florida Cup held this past weekend in Tarpon Springs, Florida. The Boys drew twice with Tarpon Spring's U13's, 1-1, defeated Clearwater U13, 5-0, and RSL Florida Dynamo, 7-0. By virtue of drawing in the final against Tarpon Springs (a match that was cut short due to lightning), BFC was handed the championship based on fewest goals allowed in the tournament.

The BFC boy's have now qualified themselves for the Florida Cup State Final Four to be held in March in Seminole, Florida. The winner there will move on to the Regional Finals.

Brandon FC 97 Boys Blue and White have great showing in Seminole.

Our U12 BFC Boys in Blue and White had a great showing this past weekend at the Seminole Labor Day Tournament. The Blue's participated in the U13 Premier bracket and the White's had to deal with a very tough U12 bracket.

The BFC Blue's were pitted against league rival CFU in their first match and did very, very well. They defeated CFU, 2-1, and East Orange Soccer, 8-0. They advanced to the Premier level Semi-Final, before losing to the eventual champions, Florida Soccer Alliance, 2-4.

The BFC White's were also pitted in the same group as a strong team, which might become a rival as well, FC America. The first match so our boy's battle back from a 2 goal deficit to tie the match at 3-3, before FC America scored the winner late. The BFC boy's worked hard all weekend and made it to the final on Monday, again vs. FC America. Our boy's battled well and hard throughout the match, however, we came up just a little short, 1-3.
