U10 Boys Play Up and Take UFA U11B Title


U10 Boys Play-up, Take UFA U11B Title

Our Georgia Express U10 Boys completed a terrific Fall season, capping their work with top honors in the UFA Fall Classic.

Fourteen of our U10 Boys traveled to Savannah to play in the Savannah Adidas Cup in November.  With small rosters of seven each, our boys competed well with our Black team making the championship game where they fell to host SSA Savannah United.

To prepare for the Spring, our U10 Boys played up an age group in the UFA Fall Classic as a U11 Boys team.  With the addition of three U11 Boys to serve as mentors, our U10 Boys had a terrific tournament playing 8v8.

Each game was a battle for the boys.  A 3-3 tie against a strong Lanier U11 Boys team was followed by a terrific 4-2 win over NASA U11B.  Sunday brought a comfortable win against an overmatched AFC Lightning team to book a place in the finals.

The opponent was Alpharetta Ambush U11B, and the boys had one of the best games of the tournament.  1-1 at halftime, Georgia Express quickly scored two goals to take a 3-1 lead.  Ambush came back to tie the game at 3-3, sending the game to overtime.  The game stayed scoreless until the 4th minute of the second overtime period, where the pressure became too much.  GXFC U10B came through in the end with a 4-3 victory.

Coached by Craig Cunningham, our Georgia Express U10 Boys team is the largest group in the club.
