VYS U9 Boys Warriors Red Take 1st in bracket and 2nd in Division at the SAC Columbus Day Tournament
VYS U9 Boys Warriors Red took first in their bracket and second in their division at the SAC Columbus Day Tournament.
The first game on Saturday morning with rain and a little chill in the air on a wet grassy field woke the boys up and we tied 3-3 in a nail bitter of a game against Arundel AJAX.
On to game two and after a little break and team bonding by piling in the back of a mini van to watch a movie, the kids came out on fire. Game two against Bethesda Orange was a 5-1 win with a goal immediately into the first few minutes of the game and the boys didn't let off the gas until the end.
Day two brought much better weather and a vigor to win the fist game against the Carrol Manor Fire. The boys locked in a 3-0 win by dominating the mid-field and unloading a constant attack to bring home the top spot in the bracket. After a long break and field delays we were on to the finals against BFC Barca 05 Elite, who had taken each of their bracket games with no less than 5 goals.
The boys fought hard and worked the ball around the field with numerous shots on goal but BFC Barca pulled out the win in the end with a 3-0 victory.
Who would have thought that you would have to travel an hour north into Maryland to play a team 15 minutes away in Virginia where both teams left as champions. It was a great weekend for soccer, the boys had a great time, and the Vienna flag was flown strong.
