Recap: Blue Suede Soccer Tournament

UNITED Soccer Club enjoyed a great debut in the Blue Suede Tournament in Jackson, TN.

Fire had victories on Saturday over West Kentucky (8-0) and 02 Royals (7-1). Both games were dominated by UNITED and goals were evenly split between the halves. Annabel Leonard scored the first ever competitive goal for UNITED in the first minute against WKY. Sunday’s semi final against 02 Royal Select ended with a 3-1 loss to UNITED, a great game with great soccer being played by Fire bodes well for the future of this young team.

Galaxy opened the weekend with a win 1-0 against PAO before losing to Lobos Rush in the second game. Sunday’s game saw them joining battle against an old enemy, Tupelo, and in a tough, physical game Galaxy lost to take third place in the tournament.

A great weekend of soccer for Fire and Galaxy and the groundwork was laid for a great season.
