U18 & U11 boys tremendous efforts by both teams
My U18B Black and U11B Red teams made tremendous efforts last weekend at the Froedtert & Medical College of WI Invitational tournament at Uihlein.
The U18s did absolutely fantastic last weekend. We played three games. We did take one game, but the other two were notable in the level of competition we faced and held up against. We were able to hold off a regional team to 1-1 through most of the first half; we played absolutely brilliantly with them.
Another faceoff was against a premier team from Minnesota. According to their coach, they had the “best striker from their state who has numerous Division 1 scholarship offers”. Based on the first half, we can play against any team. So, a tremendous, tremendous accomplishment for the U18s this weekend.
The U11s had their work cut out for them as they matched up against higher division teams through the entire tournament. While their competition may have been unbalanced, the boys rose to the challenge. They fought to create at least half a dozen looks inside the box, and three were opportunities inside the six, and we were able to get off the shots. Very great experience for everyone overall.
