2017 Desert Classic Champions

Congratulations to the U14B - 2003B Black team on capturing the 2017 Desert Classic Championship at the SC Del Sol tournament in Phoenix, Arizona!

The team won their first game in group play against Challenge FC Gilbert 03B White (AZ) 1-0 with a goal by Kobe Perez and assisted by Nikola Babac & Tommy Philpot.

The team won their second game in group play against Kingman 03B (AZ) 3-0 with goals by Tommy Philpot, Jason Isley & Nikola Babac.

The team had everything to play for in their third group play game as the winner would advance to the championship game. The boys came out and scored two early goals by Kobe Perez & Tommy Philpot which set the tone for the rest of the game. A shoutout to the defense as they shut down a very good attack from the YUMA Legends. They won the game against YUMA Legends 03B Navy (AZ) 2-1 to advance to the championship game.

In the championship game, the boys once against scored two early goals to give them a good lead and put pressure on the other team. A goal from a volley of a corner kick from Tommy Philpot put the team up 1-0 and a 35 yard bomb from Kyle Kennedy put the team up 2-0 at halftime. The second half was very intense with back and forth action. The boys managed the game and found a way to win the game against a very good team Barcelona 03B (AZ) 2-1.

The defense & keeper played outstanding all weekend as they only allowed 2 goals in 4 games.

Great work by all the players this weekend as they had a great showing in Phoenix, Arizona!
