On a rainy, muddy Sunday at the US Cellular Soccer Complex, two FC Alliance girls teams took home the gold as hosts of the Southeast Academy Classic. 00 Girls Pool 1 and 99 Girls Black were each declared champions of the tournament’s highest divisions for their age groups. Although the club was represented well in every age group (U9-U12), the 00 and 99 girls ended up with much desired extra tall trophies.

The conditions started fine in the morning, but by the time the final games were played, the fields were reduced to mud and water. Many teams had to abandon quality soccer and just keep the ball off the ground. Although a lot of teams gave it their all, there were also quite a few humorous moments, as players went slipping and sliding. More than a few players ended up covered in mud, more often than not after a spill or dive of some sort. Congratulations to all champions and finalists!
