By Staff | Jun 25, 2010

Members of the EPIC U-10 Gunners soccer team pose for a team picture following their victory as winners of the Frederick County Youth Soccer League’s spring tournament.

The Eastern Panhandle Inter-County Soccer Club U-10 Gunners went undefeated in the Frederick County Youth Soccer League’s spring tournament recently.

Playing in the first division they defeated teams from Middletown (MSC Bromwell), Tri-County (TCSC Lightning-Burton/Brock), Frederick FC (FCF Mittereder), and drew against Hagerstown YMCA (HYMCA Barnhart) to earn themselves a place in the championship game against the team from Linganore-Urbana (LUYAA United-Cunha).

The final was delayed due to thunderstorms but that didn’t dampen the boys resolve to bring home the championship. The Gunners once again showed their defensive mettle and prevailed by a score of 1-0. The weekend showed an impressive display of defense and ball control as the team allowed only 1 goal against them in 5 games.

This brings to a close another exciting season of Gunner’s soccer. Tryouts for the 2010-2011 EPIC Gunners were being held June 14 and 16 at the VA Hospital Fields in Martinsburg beginning at 5:30 pm.

Interested youth players born after August 1, 1999 should contact the head coach Jeff Kulp Sr. at CoachKulp@EPICGunners.com.
