Coach Joel Banta’s Coast 00 Red had a tremendous weekend posting three one sided results in the qualifying rounds before earning a hard fought 4-2 victory in the final against Raleigh , North Carolina based XL Soccer World Rangers. ” We took full advantage of having the wind at our backs in the first half and went to the break up 3-1. The tournament matches this weekend at home will prepare us for our difficult Challenge League play coming up” said Coach Banta.
