Over President's Day weekend, our U16 Girls Premier team, U14 Boys Premier team, U15 Boys Premier team, and U16 Boys Premier team traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the Mayor's Cup, one of the most prestigious international college showcases, drawing elite national and international teams.
U16 Girls Premier
Our U16 girls secured 2nd place in their bracket within the most-competitive division, with an overall record of 2-1-1. They started off on Saturday with a tie against an Oregon team ranked 6th in their state and a tough 2-1 loss against a team ranked 8th in northern California, but came back on Sunday to destroy an all-star team from Australia 6-0 and continued their winning streak into Monday by defeating CAP FC United from California 2-1.
U14 Boys Premier
Our U14 boys competed in the East division and were able to secure 2nd place with an overall record of 3-1, only a single point separating them from first place. In the first game, the boys came out strong and secured a quick, 4-0 victory over a California team, Valley YSL Arsenal. In their later game, they fell 3-2 in a heartbreaker against the tough tournament champions, Downtown LVSC 01 Academy. For the remainder of the weekend, the boys shut out the competition, beating the final two teams with a score of 3-0 in both games.
U15 Boys Premier
Our U15 boys kicked off the tournament with an outstanding first day, destroying a Nevada team, Sparks Legacy 6-1 and a California club 2-1. The following day they were sent straight to the quarterfinals, where they had an exciting game against Cook Inlet Velocity Blue from Alaska and lost 3-2. In their final competition of the tournament, the boys came out tough against Arsenal Colorado Gold (ranked 11th in Colorado) and defeated them 2-1. With this victory, they were able to get first in the Adidas bracket.
U16 Boys Premier
Our U16 boys started the tournament weekend facing two extremely competitive teams, resulting in two ties on Saturday. On Sunday they played Canada's Southwest United Sports Edmonton SWU 98 and secured a victory to push them ahead to the final game on Monday against the Colorado Rapids. On Monday, the boys held onto their winning streak and shut out Colorado with a final score of 1-0, securing them 2nd place in their bracket.
