Coaches Mohammed Onibudo, Hoang Nguyen, Amha Shiferaw and Jimmy Kairuki worked "overtime" this summer, taking a group of six U7 (now U8) boys to the Mid-Atlantic Classic (MAC) Soccer Fest in Poolesville MD in late June. In the U7B Recreation Division the Golden Jets bested the field, including the runners-up Gators and Piranhas, to earn their way into the Northesast Regional KickIt 3v3 Championships in Lancaster PA in early August.
After stubbing their toe in their first match against a powerful Quicksilver, the Golden Jets came back strong, winning their last three games against the Destroyers, the Blast Juniors and the Destroyers again, to take championship honors in the tournament’s U7B Silver Division, earning the right to compete at the National KickIt 3v3 Championships in Orlando FL in January.
Congratulations to the boys and their coaches on a summer well-spent in preparation for the BRYC fall season ahead. Coach Shiferaw has become the U8B League Director. The other three will be back on the pitch. Let the competition beware!
