Starting off the labor day weekend, we found ourselves playing against a very good team from Richmond, Virginia and after about 10 minutes with several chances we just couldn't find the back of the net. After entering the second half on a wet rainy day it appeared the boys weren't awake nor ready and we took a very tough loss to start the tournament in the top Championship Division.
After a long discussion after our first game and explaining to the boys this is a top level tournament in the top bracket, and that every game was going to be tough, we challenged the boys to forget about the last game and only worry about the next game. Going into the second game the boys took their frustration out on a team from Maryland and played extremely well and found ourselves dominating 95% of the game. Surprisingly enough, we found after day one with 1 win and 1 loss we may still have chance to get back in the mix with the other results in our division.
On Day 2, we started off playing the only undefeated team in our division, a top team in PA West, Pittsburgh Riverhounds. They again came through with a very good game both offensively and defensively with a big 3-1 win. That led us to the last game of the day against the #1 team in DE and the result would seal our fate. After the first 15 minutes we knew the boys came to play and we went into the half up 3-0. Delaware Rush clawed there way back into the game but the boys seal the deal with a few more goals and the final result was a 5-3 win to take Tournament Champions. The boys never gave up and the result shows in the picture and we couldn't be happier for them.
