Stallions 98 rusty in rain-soaked VA Beach Spring Classic

The effects of the winter weather on training were evident as the Stallions 98 looked rusty and out of sync, dropping two games in a torrential downpour amid 30 MPH winds in Virginia Beach against two strong Beach FC teams. The tournament was partially cancelled due to weather and a no-show team in the U17/U16 and HS age groups resulted in some much appreciated creative scheduling and tournament team rosters by Beach FC to help those teams that traveled get in some time on the pitch.

Although the Stallions 98 had trouble finishing, they did not concede a goal for the second tournament in a row and only one in their last three tournaments.
