  • Our might U12s played great! We split our team into and played round robin style against Haney. Both teams beat Haney and then eded in a 6 All Tie against each other.
  • There was also a boys vs. girls game with Haney's player that allowed for all the kids to make new friends and be coached by different players. It was fun to watch - Congrats to all the players, coaches and organizers.
