Manchester United Premier Nike Cup
The U14/15 Vardar Boys enjoyed a very successful
trip to Beaverton Oregon as they finished fifth in a field of
twenty. Playing some of the finest clubs in the nation the boys
displayed great commitment and energy compiling a 5-2 record
while allowing only 2 goals against.
In the preliminary stages the Vardar boys won
their group which consisted of: Vardar, Scott Gallagher,
Bethesda FC, Nomads FC, and the Irvine Strikers.
In the quarter-final stage the boys lost a
heartbreaker to the Arsenal in penalty kicks after a 0-0 draw.
Showing great character Vardar came back to defeat So Cal United
and the Surf to claim fifth overall.
The Vardarstars organization is very proud
the accomplishments of this group of young men who represented
our club and state with great class and dignity.
