CHAMPIONS OF CAYO FOOTBALL COACHES ASSOCIATION TOURNAMENT

The Cayo Coaches Association youth tournament was a success. Four teams participated in the U16 division and 3 in the U13 division. Our U16 team had a very good competition, but ended in third place.

Our U13 team made it to the finals against Benque's Football Academy. After loosing our previous game against them 4-3 the Benquenos thought they had the championship in their hands. However, our boys were determined to proove otherwise. Turn-out for workouts was execellent. Our game plan was practiced over and over again.

Then, the day finally arrived. The pitch was not what we had anticipated for it had rained in the days prior. However, this didn't stop our boys from executing our game plan and in the 7th minute or so, Nadir Guzman received a pass from Leonel, beat two defenders and placed a shot to the far post of the Benque keeper who tried but was unable to intercept. Just before the half ended, Nadir beat the defenders again and crossed the ball to a lonely Elito Constancia who wasted no time to defeat the Benque's goalie. Finally, in the 20th minute of the second half, after a shot from Leonel that the keeper couldn't hold, Nadir again blasted a shot on an already demoralized Benque keeper who saw it go into his net yet again. The game ended 3-0 and we were crowned champions of the U13 division.

Note: Nadir Guzman and Elito Constancia are two of our promising football stars. Both are 10 years old, and are participating in the U13 division of players born 90 and 91. Nadir also participated in several U15 games, where he tallied 7 goals.
