September 1, 2018 -- Methacton United's U11 Flash took home silver medals after finishing second in their division at the 31st Al Perlini Memorial Tournament Sept. 1 in Warminster, Pa. The Flash jumped out of the gate with an impressive 2-0 shutout over Southampton SA Barcelona in the opener.
Their second game pitted the Flash against the eventual division champion, Yardley Markefield. The Flash battled in a hard-fought, very physical game, ultimately falling 2-0 (although we still think we scored as time expired in the second half!).
As the temperatures climbed during the afternoon, the Flash stayed focused, closing out the tournament with a 3-0 win against the Upper Darby Futbol Blasters and a 4-1 victory over Upper Dublin White DRA. This strong tournament performance gives the team good momentum heading into their Central League schedule this fall. Go Flash!
