The Fond du Lac Phoenix U14 Boys Premier team was recently named champion of the Presidents Cup tournament in Wisconsin Dells. This Wisconsin Youth Soccer Association Competition draws top-level teams from across the State.

"The boys played their hearts out throughout this competition, dealing with adverse conditions and outstanding competition," commented Head Coach Dave Moehn.

The team faced two very competitive teams leading up to the championship. Fond du Lac beat Kenosha in game one, with a shutout score of 2-0. Goals were scored by Carlos Valdivia and Sawyer Thompson, with assists by Brock Gerritson and Carson Kelly. The second game was against the Madison 56ers. Fond du Lac took an early lead with a goal from Valdivia off an assist by Kelly. Shortly thereafter, Madison tied the game. A final goal in the second half by Kelly (assist by Dante Santana) secured Fond du Lac's spot in the final round of the tournament. 

The championship game was held the following day, when Fond du Lac faced the Bavarian Juniors. Fondy held commanding possession and relentless defense throughout the game. The final 4-0 score came from two goals by Kelly - including a penalty kick in the uppermost corner of the goal box - and two goals from Valdivia. Santana also provided an assist in the final.

"Defensively, the boys were solid throughout the entire tournament, only allowing one goal," said Moehn. "Our possession and attack improved as the tournament progressed, and we were able to dominate in the final. It was a great effort by the Fondy Phoenix U14 Boys Premier team!"

The Fond du Lac Phoenix U14 Boys Premier team includes: Andy Cortes, Devin Cruz, Leo Lara Cruz, Braden Gerritson, Brock Gerritson, Carson Kelly, Jonah Krueger, Ethan Letkewicz, Eric Lopez, Jonathan Morales, Nick Riley, Dante Santana, Justin Scherberl, Sawyer Thompson, Jose Torres, and Carlos Valdivia. The team is led by Head Coach Dave Moehn, and Assistant Coaches Felix Cruz, Juan Lara, and Jordan Moehn.
