Nunes G04 Brings Home The 2017 Presidents Cup Region 4 Championship
Congratulations to Beach FC G04 Nunes for winning the President’s Cup Region IV Championship! Of all the tournaments in youth club soccer, the President’s Cup is the most prestigious, and it determines the annual club soccer national champions for each age group.
The girls won their first match 4–2 over Visalia Galaxy Elite (CA) behind a brace from Nicole Scott and goals from Paradyse Wong and Chloe Allison. They earned a victory by the same score the next day over Blue Knights G04 UL (UT); this time it was Camryn Cruz at the double, with Emma Saucedo netting the winner and Allison providing insurance. The team rounded out pool play with a 4–0 win over Challenge FC Avondale G04 Blue (AZ), with goals from Cruz (2), Sydney Trump, and Allison.
In the quarterfinals, Beach FC beat Pacific Northwest Soccer Club (WA) 4–1 with goals from Wong, Cruz, Erin Hegstrom, and Trump, and earned a great 3–1 victory over WFC Rangers (WA) behind scoring from Madeleine Rael, Nicole Scott, and Cruz.
Beach faced Real Colorado Olympico (CO) in the finals, and may have saved their best for last. After a scoreless first half, Liberty-Faith Ortiz broke the game open in the 53rd minute, and Cruz doubled the lead four minutes later. Cruz — who would finish as joint-top scorer of the tournament with 8 — added a late goal to seal the shutout victory in the 68th.
Beach FC G04 Nunes now travels to Auburndale, FL to compete for the President’s Cup National Championship from July 12–16. Be sure to bookmark the tournament page. Congratulations to Coach Eduardo and the entire team, and we wish you the best of luck at Nationals!
