GXFC U13 Boys Sweep Lightning Challenge


Matching their title from last summer, Coach Daniel's U13 Boys conceded two goals in four games to take the AFC Lightning Challenge.  It was well worth the trek!

Georgia Express kicked off at 8:00, facing a talented host AFC team.  Once ahead by two goals, the boys absorbed pressue handily keeping their first clean sheet.  The second game Saturday was against a strong Concorde Central team fresh off a 5-0 victory in the morning.  It was a hard fought battle, with a late equalizer coming off a GXFC direct kick in the upper 90. 

Sunday brought some wild games throughout the group.  Georgia Express weathered Georgia Storm, posting their second clean sheet.  In the finals they met CFC Red Star, who rallied from their 5-0 defeat to Concorde with two wins while Concorde were held to a scoreless draw in the morning.  Our U13 Boys finished in style with a third clean sheet to take home the trophy.  Congrats to the boys as they prepare for their upcoming Fall season!
