Coast 03 Red Wins Battery Cup
Dateline: Monday February 24, 2014
The Coast 03 Red U10 boys captured top honors in the Charleston Battery Cup over the weekend in Mount Pleasant , South Carolina. Coach Swavek Apanowicz's squad continued their impressive Spring season with four consecutive wins over quality opponents. Two of the wins came against strong teams from Savannah Georgia and the other two against a very familiar DSC Green squad from Rock Hill South Carolina. The final saw Coast go down early 0-1 only to fight back to tie things up at 1-1 at half. Two long range strikes from set pieces proved to be the difference in the match as it ended 3-1 Coast.
Three other Coast teams participated in the event and posted solid results. The highlight of the weekend for the kids was being able to watch the Charleston Battery host MLS teams DC United, Houston Dynamo and Seattle Sounders in sold out Blackbaud Stadium.
