Rush Pikes Peak Enjoys Success at the FRIT
Rush Pikes Peak teams had a successful weekend at the Front Range Invitational Tournament.
The U10 boys bracket included the Bolts, Epic, Strikers, and Barcelona teams. The U10 girls bracket featured the Flames from the Pueblo branch and the Rockstars, Rocket Dogs, and Blue Thunder teams. All of the developmental teams had a lot of fun playing a ton of soccer and learning new things.
Six Rush Pikes Peak teams played in the tournament’s competitive brackets. In true Rush fashion, four of the teams on the girls’ side featured guest players from Rush Pikes Peak.
The U11 Rush boys earned six points in pool play and finished second.
The U12 boys bracket included Rush Pikes Peak Azul and Rush Pikes Peak Nero, with Nero winning the championship over Castle Rock Storm White.
The U15 Nero boys finished at the top of the bracket in pool play and came in second overall.
The U11 Nero girls fought through a tough U12 bracket and finished the tournament in fifth place with a win over U11 Colorado Rush Weiss.
The U14 Rush girls, which included players from four different spring teams and coaches from two different teams, went undefeated on the weekend. The team won a close final game 1 – 0 after a corner kick goal from Sydney Silver broke the stalemate in the second half.
Congratulations to all Rush Pikes Peak players who participated in the tournament and modeled the Rush core values of enjoyment, unity, tenacity, respect, and passion throughout the weekend.
