Beach G18 Season Review

2014-nat-champs

Beach G18 crowned 2013-2014 USYSA National Champions! 

Our Beach G18 culminated the 2013-2014 year in dominating fashion as they posted a perfect 5-0 record with an astonishing 17-0 goal differential in Maryland, en route to capturing the National Championship.

In group play, the team posted a 7-0 win over Sting (TX), 3-0 over Match Fit Beat (NJ), 3-0 over Greta Green (NE). In the semifinals, the team defeated the 2012 National Champs BRYC Elite 95 from Virginia by a score of 2-0 on two goals by Shannon Simon. In the final Beach FC toppled the 2013 Defending National Champions Cleveland United White 2-0 on two goals by Ashley Gonzales.

Shannon Simon was awarded the tournament’s Golden Ball presented to the outstanding player of the week; Nonie Frishette was awarded the Golden Glove, presented to the outstanding goalkeeper of the week, and finally, Shannon Simon, Nonie Frishette, and Sami Reinhard were also chosen to the Best XI Team.

The team rolled thru official USYSA competitions this year winning everything in sight with a 24-1 record (National League, California Regional League, State-National Cup, USYSA National Championship) scoring 86 goals while only allowing 4.  The Beach G18 team captured the club’s first National Championship trophy, having to wait all of two hours for the next one, and four hours for the third!  Three championships in one day! The club is particularly proud of this group, as every single member of this team will be packing up this week to continue their soccer careers at four-year institutions throughout the country.

GO BEACH!
