The month of June was a good one for the Shamrocks. Coming off their Chili Invitational Championship with a 4-0 record on the final days of May, the boys continued their success through June by winning the Hilton Tournament (4-0) with impressive wins over Lockport of Buffalo’s top Travel Division, Pehlam (Ontario Canada), and the host club, Hilton.
Furthermore, the Shamrocks finished 2nd in the Elite Division of the Lakefront Classic / Empire Cup Tournament held over Fathers Day weekend in Webster. In what could be viewed as their greatest accomplishment, the Shamrocks went 3-1 in the 7 team field consisting of top U14 teams in the Region. Our club team competed at the highest level and led the tournament in scoring while defeating 3 Premier Teams from the Thruway League’s top Division.
Finally, on June 28, the Shamrocks completed their first season playing in the Presidents Division of the Thruway League. This endeavor presented a new challenge to the boys and they responded admirably going 6-1-1 and finishing 2nd, only 1 point out of first place. The Shamrocks led the League in “Goals For” (26) and “Goals Against” (6).
The team would like to thank their parents, club and all its volunteers for making this possible. Your support and tireless efforts to embrace the youth of our community and give them the opportunity to play both recreationally and competitively in this beautiful game we call soccer is appreciated more than you know. Memories have been created that will last a life time.
