The LFC 03B EDP Showcase team battled through a weekend of extreme heat and great competition to come home with the Championship of the EDP Fall Kick Off. The boys opened their tournament matched up with Baltimore Celtic SC West coming away with a confident and routine 2-0 win. Their second match of the day against ASA DMV Elite 03B was one that started with complete control as they managed a 3-0 lead at half. Their resolve was tested as they gave up two early second half goals and then a third after an hour of play. With the match tied 3-3, the boys came through and Kevin Cruz netted the game winner to leave it at 4-3.
The final match of the tournament left two Loudoun County teams battling for the championship – Leesburg FC vs Loudoun Red 03B. It was the thriller that all anticipated and did not disappoint. A heated and contested battle came down to LFC going ahead off of a set piece played by Ethan Pham to an on running Kevin Cruz who beat the keeper with an acrobatic header.
The boys now begin EDP play against some of the top teams in VA with Arlington SA Academy, VA Beach City FC Academy 03B, SYC Lions Blue 03B, Barca Academy NOVA Blue, and Team America BATA along with NCS Virginia State Cup.
