Proving the depth of work ethic and willingness to compete - while nursing injuries, missing five rostered players, and adding six guest players - Shadow’s G93 U16 Navy team, coached by George Hageage, won the City of Las Vegas Mayor’s Cup International Youth Soccer Showcase 2010 U16 Championship over President’s weekend. The team went undefeated (scoring 8 goals and giving up 0) in their five games beating Auburn Rage (2-0), Westminster AFC Cosmos (2-0), Players SC 95 SB (1-0), Real Reno FC Select 94 (4-3), and Wasatch Wolves NF (3-0).
“This is why I believe Shadow is the strongest club,” said Coach Hageage. “We can pull in players from GU16 Sky, bring players up an age group, invite a player from another club, and can choose to be a team and compete. I am extremely proud of how this group of young ladies came together.”
