PWSI Toys For Tots: Host club snares several trophies in girls’ championship play

By Charles Boehm

WOODBRIDGE, Va. – Host club Prince William Soccer, Inc. garnered the largest trophy haul on the girls’ side as champions were crowned across 10 age groups in the opening weekend of the 2013 Toys For Tots Tournament on Sunday, one of the fall youth season’s unofficial kickoff milestones in the Washington, D.C. region.

PWSI teams won highest honors in the top Under-13, U-14 and U-19 girls’ brackets and also claimed hardware in other U-14 and U-17 divisions as a range of clubs from across Virginia used the event as a final tune-up for their upcoming league campaigns.

PWSI Courage 98G Red set the tone for Sunday with a domineering roll through the Girls U-17 High School Pride bracket, culminating an undefeated, unscored-upon weekend with a 7-0 dispatching of VYSA Strikers Red in the division’s championship final.

A similar example was set with PWSI 95G Gold’s impressive mastery of the U-19 age group and PWSI Courage 00G Red’s smooth sailing through the U-13 Girls Courage division, with the latter allowing zero goals and the former conceding just one overall.

The hosts’ PWSI Courage 99G Red group was similarly impressive in their drive to a U-14 Girls Courage bracket victory.

It was a photo finish – and then some – in the Girls U-17 High School Courage competition. FPYC (Fairfax Police Youth Club) Wildcats Blue squeezed into the top spot in the division’s round-robin structure just a smidge ahead of FCV United 96 (a team formerly known as SYA FCV 96) via alternate tiebreaker after both squads finished with identical 3-1 records and plus-5 goal differentials.

Hampton Roads Strikers Elite made sure their long drive north from the Tidewater area was worthwhile with a powerful conquest of Toys For Tots’ U-15 Girls Courage bracket. Strikers Elite made light work of their group-round and semifinal opponents before defeating Chantilly SC Magic 3-0 in the cup final.

Toys For Tots 2013 continues with U-9 through U-12 action this weekend. In keeping with tournament tradition, all participants and spectators are urged to bring new, unwrapped toys for donation to the Marine Corps charitable organization of the same name.
