 Success at Denver Cup

What a weekend! Our two younger teams, U13s and U15s started training On August 2nd for the 2010-11 season. Then headed to Denver on on Thursday, August 5th to play in their first tournament of the season. We considered it part of "pre-season" training and a good way for all the boys to get to know each other. We didn't realize how quickly everything would CLICK as we brought two new coaches into the mix of 20+ new players.

The Tournament was hosted by Colorado Rush and was played at Dick's Sporting Goods Soccer Complex. Both teams played five matches and they both made it into the final.
The U13s beat Real Colorado, Pike Peak Rush, and a couple others before losing in a PK Shootout in the final against Fort Collins Arsenal. After regulation time the score was 0-0. After the first round of PK's we unfortunately missed one and lost 4-5. The U15s were on fire right from the beginning beat teams 7-2 and 13-0. They won the final 3-2 against Colorado Rush.

Both teams bonded quickly, had an entertaining pool workout (see below), attended the Rapids match (purchased vuvzelas) and overall had a great weekend. Congrats to Dustin Ottesen our new U13s coach and Edmond Rugova our new U15s coach. Bios will be coming shortly!
