FCU Boys & Girls Find Success In Phoenix

FC United Boys and Girls teams took a trip to Phoenix, Arizona last week to participate in the 2020 Desert Classic hosted by SC Del Sol. Not only did the teams enjoy the warm weather, but they also enjoyed their time on the field and we saw some outstanding performances throughout the tournament. Out of the ten total teams representing FC United, we had three teams return as Champions and one finish as tournament Finalists.


The FCU Boys 2008 Pre-Academy, coached by Greg Hennelly, finished as tournament Finalists after a hard-fought battle that went down to the wire and ended in a PK shootout. The boys competed at a very high level all weekend long with very solid performances in every game.


The Girls 2007 Select 1 and Girls 2004 Select 1 finished the weekend as tournament Champions. The 2007 Select 1 Girls won the Championship trophy outright with two wins and one tie, finishing the weekend with six goals scored and only two against. The 2004 Select 1 Girls also won their group outright and finished in first place, edging their opponents out by a goal differential of two. We would like to extend a huge congratulations to both groups for a hard-fought weekend!


Our 2006 Select 1 Boys, coached by Nick Basan, finished top of their group as tournament Champions with three wins and one tie on the weekend. The boys played extremely well in every game scoring eleven goals and only allowing three across four games. Congratulations to Coach Nick and his players for an outstanding weekend at the Desert Classic.


We want to congratulate all of our FC United teams and coaches that traveled out to Phoenix for the 2020 Desert Classic. GO FCU!
