U10B Arsenal played well all Columbus Day weekend, and brought home trophies in their U11 boys bracket.
Arsenal played some very strong soccer as a team, winning 3 of 4 games, the last over the previously undefeated GUFC Hammerheads on Sunday afternoon to earn trophies. U10B Arsenal won 2 games on Saturday, one at Sara Lee and then moved over to BB&T to play a great game under the lights, beating a good DCUSA team 4-1 with an excellent second half performance. On Sunday, Arsenal was back at the Sara Lee, getting beaten mid-day by a strong CASL Bees team (1-4), and then coming back to dominate the last game 4-0.
Every one of Arsenal’s 13 players had an assist during the weekend, and seven players scored goals. 6 players played some minutes at goalkeeper. Arsenal kept the ball on the ground with a strong attack of dribbling and passing (killing many worms) throughout the weekend. Arsenal played very strong defense except during the second half of the first game on Sunday.
