Overcoming fierce competition and poor weather conditions, the GU-15 Metros Blue triumphed in Williamsburg to take the title in the Presidents Day Cup and Showcase over President’s Day weekend. The Metros brought home the trophy in a thrilling overtime shootout that featured the Metros Goal Keeper thwarting 3 shots attempted by reigning Virginia State Cup Champion VSA Heat. The Metros overall play throughout the tournament was dazzling but their defense was particularly stout, allowing only one goal in regulation in all four games played. With the win, Metros coach Jorge Hunt’s team not only soared to number 48 in the USA in Got Soccer’s national ranking, the Metros’ victories over Fredericksburg FASA Elite Impact and Loudon Soccer Loud boosted the Metros to number 5 in the Virginia rankings. Go METROS!
