The Manchester Boys U8 Academy team have now captured their third trophy of the summer! After playing four games over the weekend, the boys walked away as champions after beating the Carlsbad Lightning Red team by a score of 4-1 in the final. The Manchester boys breezed through bracket and semi-final play with high-scoring, entertaining soccer and without allowing a single goal against them. In the final, after a slow start, they were able to jump ahead to a 2-0 lead in the first half. In the second half, Lightning got back into the game by scoring on a corner kick to make it 2-1. However, the Manchester boys showed their fight, regained control of the game, and pulled away to a 4-1 victory. The Manchester BU8 Academy team is coached by Steve Hill.
