Several teams from across the club were all over the country last weekend and returned home with some success.
During their 1st two days in San Diego, the ECNL U14, U16 and U17s were very competitive against some of the top teams in the nation. They were facing the top California clubs in several matches with 98 Bradshaw coming within a goal of CA Slammers FC, 96 Rhein capturing a 1-1 draw vs McLean, and the U17s (missing several players), drew 0-0 vs CA Real So Cal. The ECNL teams finish up today.
