Canton United Brings Home Championships from the Nation’s Second Largest Tournament at the Nike Challenge Cup

 

Over the past two weekends many Canton United teams participated in what is now the second largest tournament in the country. Only Surf Cup in California bests the Nike Cup in overall attendance.

Canton United had many teams accepted into the top levels of the tournament with some age groups having 10 tiers of play!

Congratulations to the Champions and Finalists…

The U9 Boys Blue were accepted into the top tier (Elite Division) of the tournament and had an outstanding showing over the weekend. Despite starting slow with a 3-2 loss the boys then rallied off three consecutive wins including a dramatic 5-4 win in the final!

The U12 Boys Blue were accepted into the top tier (Elite Division 11v11) of the tournament and went down defending last years championship. The boys went through a tough group stage, a dramatic penalty kick shootout, and a strong 3-2 win over Indy Premier Nike in the semi-final before running out of steam in the championship match to finish as runners up.

The U13 Boys Blue were accepted into the Premier 11v11 Division of the tournament and went undefeated in the first 3 games of the tournament including games vs Empire United from New York and two Pennsylvania West clubs. It was an outstanding showing for the boys who went on to the championship match and finishes as runners up.

Also some congratulations to the U11 Boys Blue team who won 2 out of their 3 group stage games and did not advance, The U14 Boys White team who only gave up 1 goal in 3 games but did not advance, the U13 Girls Blue team who were in the Elite 11v11 Division and only gave up 1 goal but did not advance, and the U12 Girls who won 2 out of their 3 matches but did not advance. All of these teams had strong tournaments despite not advancing.
