The 97 Boys Blue team won the Arsenal Challenge U16 Silver bracket on Oct. 7, defeating 97 San Tan of Phoenix, 2-1. The two teams met earlier in the tournament and played to a 3-3 draw.
The championship game was just as exciting. TSA scored early and San Tan equalized soon after. The game was back and forth with both teams having opportunities to score. TSA scored the go-ahead goal midway through the second half.
Congratulations to coaches Tony and Cody and the entire ’97 Boys Blue team!
