BFC R Perez G06 – Silverlakes College Showcase Champions!
It was a busy Thanksgiving weekend for Beach FC LB G06 R. Perez. After going undefeated in their first 3 games of bracket play in unusually warm weather, they earned the spot in the semifinals of the Silverlakes College Showcase event against a formidable West Coast G2006 team who were also undefeated in bracket play.
Beach FC were determined to advance from the kickoff, winning 50/50s and doing a great job moving off the ball. Their defensive line was solid throughout, while their midfield were relentless in feeding their offense. The result was a 4-0 victory for Beach FC, sending them to the finals against Legends FC – South who defeated SoCal Academy in their own semifinals.
The finals were the 5th game in 3 days for both teams and set up to be a true test in perseverance, focus and heart for both squads.
Both teams put out the most exciting first ten minutes of perhaps any game throughout the tourney with four goals scored in first ten minutes. Beach FC was still winning most of the 50/50s, and our speed up top proved too much. Ahead 5-1 at the half, Beach maintaned lead and held off Legends FC’s second half pressure to win the final with a final score of 6-1.
Champions don’t show up to get everything they want. They show up to give everything they have — that’s exactly what Beach FC LB G06 R. Perez did this weekend. We look forward to watching this team continue to grow and develop together!
