Congratulations to both of Quaker Elite’s U12 Boys teams. On May 18, 2019, they each won their Flights at the Whitpain Spring Classic Tournament.
First, the U12 Gold Team won the Gold Flight by winning 2 out of their 3 games and fighting for a draw in the third with with no substitutes available on a very hot Saturday afternoon. The Gold team won the flight over Lower Merion Soccer Club’s Megalodons by one point (7-6). Crucially, the Gold team beat the Megalodons in its first game, guaranteeing that had they tied the Megalodons in points, they would still have won the flight by beating them head to head.
After the Gold Team had been crowned the champions of the Gold Flight, the Quaker Elite U12 Boys Navy Team took their undefeated record onto the field at 5:30 p.m. to play the only other undefeated team in the Silver Flight, the Perk Valley SC Wolverines. Both teams took the field knowing that the winner would be crowned Champion of the Silver Flight. In addition, the Navy team knew that the Gold team had already won its Flight immediately prior to the start of their game. Powered by consistent defensive play and explosive speed on offense, the Navy team beat the Wolves to win the Silver Flight as the sole undefeated team in the Flight.
Special thanks and congratulations to Coaches Mike Falsetta, Steve J. Baron and Steve H. Baron who shared the coaching duties throughout the long, hot day. Also congratulations to all of the Club’s Coaches as both teams had the best goal differential, the most goals for and fewest goals against in each of their Flights!
