Eastside FC soccer team wins championship
September 3, 2013
The Eastside FC B95 White soccer team brought home the championship trophy from the 2013 Pacific Coast Challenge tournament Aug. 23-25 in Bellingham.
The U19 Premier champions, coached by Fernando Barros and Anderson “Xinho” Prestes, went 2-0-1 in bracket play, scoring 10 goals and allowing only 3, to earn a ticket to the semifinals, where they went on to grind out a win against Northwest Nationals B95 Red, 1-0.
In the championship match, they faced a tough WFC Rangers team, the team they tied 1-1 in bracket play. They were determined, however, to extract a different outcome, and earned a win and shutout with a 2-0 victory.
