U13 Boys Represent Georgia at D2 Region Championships


Playing up in class, the Georgia Express 05 Boys swept all four games to take the Georgia Soccer D2 Championships in November.  The boys will represent Georgia Soccer in the Region III Presidents Cup Championship held in Greenville, SC in June 2018.

The D2 Championships is open to any Classic II team and below.  As a Classic III team, Georgia Express faced three Classic II teams to secure their victory.  Saturday's tournament started with a 4-1 victory of mid-table CFC Red Star Elite.  In the afternoon, Georgia Express faced the 2nd place team from Classic II Alianza Elite 05B.  The underdogs scored in a flurry to hand their opponent a 4-2 win. 

Sunday's are typically about defending in tournaments, and the games became tighter.  With a spot in the championship on the line, Georgia Express held DDY Wolves 05 Elite to a tight 2-0 win.  Steamers FC Chilpo 05B waited in the finals, the top Classic II team from Fall 2017.  Steamers had scored 18 goals in their first three games.  They could not find the net in the finals, and Georgia Express prevailed with their second 2-0 victory to take the crown. 

June's Region III President's Cup will bring teams representing states from the Southeast including Texas, Florida, North Carolina, and Tennessee.  Congratulations to Coach Alfredo Ruiz, Team Manager Gabriela Bautista, and all the boys for this achievement.
