U14 and U15 Predators Win SSA Summer Classic


Both U14 and U15 FFC Predators pulled off a double whammy with wins at the SSA Summer Classic. The U15's are an established team who have seen success since they were formed two years ago. They have moved up a division every season except one, and even that season they were involved in a three way points tie, but finished third on goal difference. In total contrast, the U14's are a brand new team. This was their first tournament.


Playing in the U15 Second division, the U15 Predators were dominant from the beginning. They dominated Atlanta Fire 00/01 Bronze 12-0 in their first game. That was followed by a 4-1 defeat of DSC 01B Revolution Green. Day two was a 5-0 win over Chelsea 01B Select Blue 1 which took them into the afternoon final. Here they struck gold with a 7-3 victory over UFA 01 Gold.

The U14 Predators pulled off a 2-1 win over DSC 02B Revolution Green in their first ever game. I their second game of they day they fell behind 2-4 to GSA 02 White but a hat trick in the last fifteen minutes by Nigel McCloud pulled them through for a come from behind 5-4 win. Coach Othavong thought it was the greatest comeback he had ever seen.


On day two it was more of the same. The morning game was another 2-1 win, this time against NASA B'20 Royal. This took them to the final which they won by that familiar 2-1 score, beating Concorde Fire U14 Central Red Boys for the gold.



Both teams will be starting their fall season games soon. The U15's are moving up to the Classic III level. As a new team the U14's were placed in Classic V, but considering that three of their tournament wins were against Classic III teams, we hope they will quickly move up the ranks. FCYSL and FFC wish both teams success in their future!
