Border Bandits News
BB91 beat Dallas Solar 2-0 this past Saturday great results as they are ranked as one of the best teams in the Nation. Boys played excellent 1st half and continue on through the 2nd with goals coming from Alfonso Mangana and Mario Perez converting a penalty late on in the game. Sunday we played the famous Dallas Texans losing 3-1 against a very good also National ranked team. Bandits not playing very well in this game but holding their own. Overall another good weekend.


Congratulations to BB93 & BB91 both teams have qualified for Premier League Play for Fall 2006. This puts them in a group with Oklahoma, North Texas, Houston, Austin.
