Coast FA had another successful weekend of tournament soccer; this time at the 2018 Can Am Cup here in Myrtle Beach. Five Coast teams advanced to the finals this Sunday, but it was the ladies that stole the show.
Coach Ragan Cote’s 07 Red girls fought their way into the final beating NCFC, and local rival Beach United. Their only hiccup in group play came at the hands of a strong Cainhoy Athletic team. The two wins were enough to secure 2nd place in the group, and another crack at Cainhoy in the final. The 07 Girls were not to be denied the second time around winning 2-1, and bringing home the Can Am Cup.
Coach Tim Thomas’ 09 Red and Coach Manny Ardeljan’s 10 Red both made their second consecutive tournament finals; with both unfortunate not to come home victorious. The 09s and 10s represent two of the youngest teams at Coast FA, and with each tournament they continue to impress.
Not to be outdone; both 07 Boys teams made their respective finals. Joel Banta’s 07 Red fell just short in the final against PISA Hurricanes while Coach Ben Strong’s 07 Black lost to a tough WUFA team. With 20 goals between them on the weekend its clear the 07 age group will be one to watch for years to come.
