The Mobile Boys took the win over Baldwin boys after a 3-year winning streak.
Mobile Boys coached by Daniel Whelan, Head Coach University of Mobile Men's Soccer & Gerardo Flores, Assistant Coach University of Mobile Men’s Soccer had an intense 3-2 game over Baldwin Boys coached by Zac Crawford, ASA Technical Director.
Zac Crawford talks after the game"As a coaching staff, our goals were to teach the U.S. Soccer style and system, have fun, and build relationships. We were very pleased with the boys’ attitude and work rate. They were professional, which made everything easier. Everyone got a chance to represent their school and start at least one half, while playing substantial minutes, which is difficult in these types of settings.
We were also able to scout some players for ODP, and will be in touch with certain college programs to help get these boys a look at the schools they are interested in attending. Building relationships is so important for these guys because they will hopefully be the next set of soccer coaches, parents, referees, administrators. I wanted to let them know that there are many opportunities out there for them to help grow and promote this beautiful game."
Noah Harrelson, Chris Barbosa & Jarrell Williams scored for the Mobile Boys and Colin Douglas scored both for the Baldwin Boys.
MVP for Baldwin Boys went Colin Douglas and MVP for Mobile Boys went Sherman Winchester. Way to go Boys!
We would like to thank our players, coaches, parents, friends, sponsors & volunteers who made this evening terrific!
