Manchester BU11 Academy wins Pegasus Cup

Manchester Soccer Club’s BU11 Academy Elite are champions of San Diego Pegasus Cup held June 23-25.  Runners-up in last year’s tournament, this year Manchester took home the cup with a 3-1 victory over West Coast FC of Orange County.

“The last thing I told the players before they took the field in the final was to enjoy it,” said Head Coach and Co-Director of Coaching Jeff Illingworth.  “It was a fantastic match, well played on both sides, and I’m extremely proud of how this young team played with not only the skill I know they are capable of but with heart and passion as well.”

Competing in BU10 Flight 1 (the changeover to the new age divisions for the 2012-2013 season occurs in July), Manchester bested Chula Vista Pumas Premier 4-0 and Lightning Red 4-0 in group play.  In the semifinal against tournament host SDSC, Manchester drew even with five minutes remaining in regulation before winning in penalty kicks.
