Our U9 Boys battled through an evenly-balanced group to take first place!

Each game was an exciting, topsy-turvy affair. A goal in the final minute of the first game yielded a 4-4 draw against Inter Atlanta U9B Black. The afternoon was no different, with a 1-1 nail-biter against the Atlanta Spurs U9B. Needing a win to qualify for the finals, the boys responded with a 4-1 defeat of Inter Atlanta U9B Silver. The win set up a rematch against the Inter Atlanta U9B Black squad.

This was a tight affair throughout in a lower-scoring battle, with our boys scoring a goal only to be quickly tied by the opponent. With the game tied 2-2, we headed into two overtime periods. After the first period was scoreless, the game appeared headed to penalties until a terrific header put our boys ahead 3-2. Defending relentlessly, Georgia Express held on for the Challenger Cup title.
