The U9 Black Boys' team had a fantastic run in the National Indoor Championship held
the weekend of February 28 – March 1 in North Olmsted. Playing a fast paced
attacking style the ESK boys breezed through the Group stage with a 3-0 record,
recording 24 goals for and 3 against. The guys were particularly sharp in dispatching
Charleston FC from West Virginia 13-1 early Sunday morning.
As Group winners, the boys played the Finals against Juniors FC from Chicago who
had also dominated their group which included the ever tough Michigan Burn. The Final
was played at a hectic pace and at the conclusion ESK came up short 6-3.
Receiving the plaque as National Indoor Championship Second Place the ESK U9
Black represented our club well. Congratulations to these fine young men.
