Beach FC U-12 boys take Jefferson Cup title

Beach FC U-12 Red boys team went undefeated and untied on its way to winning the Under-12 Championship 8v8 bracket at last weekend’s Jefferson Cup in Richmond, Va.

In hard-fought matches Saturday, Beach FC beat CASL 99 Elite and SYA 99 Cardinals Red by identical 3-2 scores. The next day, Beach FC pulled out a 2-1 win over the Richmond Kickers in the semifinals before shutting out Greensboro United SA Navy 4-0.

“It was a quality group and our boys did a great job of competing against some very good teams,” said coach Wayne Pratt, who also coaches the current U-15 Virginia Youth Soccer Association State Cup champions Beach FC Red. “It is still early in the season, so there is always room for improvement, but nonetheless, a good weekend to build off of.”

Beach FC boys’ Director of Coaching Mark Waite has high expectations for the U-12 team moving forward.

“It was a good weekend for our U-12 Red team, which starts with the fact that we have a very competitive U-12 age group.  Every one of our U-12 boys works hard, and it has created an environment that has elevated the standard in the age group, which is great to see.”
