Congratulations to the U11 Boys 06' Arsenal team on a well deserved Championship win at the 2017 FC Delco Players Cup. It was a great experience for the boys to play teams from other states, such as New York and New Jersey ,and we found ourselves with 2 wins (10-2, 4-1) after the first day of the tournament. However, it didn't take long to realize we had our work cut out for us after a poor first half on our second day of the tournament and going down by 5 goals. Luckily, the boys didn't give up and fought back to finish the game with a loss of 5-3.
After finishing with 2 wins and 1 loss in bracket play, we were fortunate to finish 1st in our bracket and advance to the semifinals in the afternoon were we would face Southampton 2006 Academy. Thankfully we came ready to play in the afternoon and with a huge 4-2 win we advanced to the finals the following morning to face off against the only team we lost to in the tournament, Clarkstown White. Needless to say the boys and coaches were ecstatic to play them again in the finals and wouldn't have it any other way.
Didn't take long in the finals for Clarkstown to realize we came ready to play as we went up 2-0. However (with the help of many questionable free kicks), and a very gutsy tough Clarkstown team, they fought back to tie the game 2-2 with 5 minutes remaining. With a minute left to play, Clarkstown gave up a hand ball in the box off a cornerkick with resulted in a penalty kick for Boyertown Arsenal and the rest is history. Boyertown scores off a penalty and Arsenal wins 3-2.
