The Manchester Soccer Club Boys U8 Academy Team are Coronado Holiday Cup Champions! The boys played four games over the weekend and came out on top against Carlsbad Wave in a hard-fought final.

In the first game of bracket play, Manchester were off to a strong start against Carlsbad Wave, gaining a 4-0 lead in the first half. In the second half, Wave fought their way back into the game, but Manchester never lost their composure and walked away with a 5-4 win. Next, Manchester comfortably beat Vista Storm, and then ended up drawing the final bracket game against a feisty CSC team.

In the final, Manchester again took on Carlsbad Wave. After some strong goal-tending, the game was tied 1-1 at half time. However, in the second half, Manchester poured on the pressure and earned a 3-2 victory to capture the cup.

During the last few months, Manchester’s DOC Billy Garton has been heading the team. Garton was “very pleased with how well the boys played”, noting that they “had played some great soccer”. He also thanked field-players Brenan Klein and Logan Hershey for sharing the goal tending duties during the tournament. Garton is now handing the team over to coach Ryan Penton.
