Coast Sweeps U9 Boys at YMCA Tournament
Dateline Monday October 14, 2013
For the second consecutive weekend the Coast PDC boys program has been asked to enter two balanced teams in a tournament and again came away with both the champion and finalist medals in the first division.This week it was the Coast 04 boys pool that took center stage at the Myrtle Beach YMCA event. Coach Luis Brenes and Coach Paul Morin skillfully balanced the two U9 boys teams and things could not have turned out any better. Both teams reeled off three consecutive victories to set up the all Coast FA championship match. The final match ended in a 2-2 deadlock at the end of regulation and the Coast 04 Black team eventually edged the Coast 04 Red team when the tenth PK of the shootout found the back of the net." It is always tricky when you enter two balanced teams in the same division knowing they will face one another so you better get the rosters correct. We are building quality depth at Coast in the younger age groups as the last two tournaments have shown " said DOC Joel Banta.
The Coast 99 Crush girls led by Coach R.J. Bass finished as finalist in the first division of U14 . After posting three one sided victories in the qualifying rounds the Crush knotted the score at 2-2 in the final moments of the championship match to force a PK shootout . The girls came up just short in the unconventional shootout format to finish as finalist.
