Recently the Cleveland FC U9 Boys Soccer Team competed in the CLAS Jamboree in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The Flames were put into a group of four teams that included Blount United, Knoxville FC and FC Alliance.
On Saturday morning the Flames squared off against Blount United.
After falling behind early in the game the Flames were able to battle back and win the game 4-2.
That afternoon they played their second group game against Knoxville FC and after a tough game came up just short, losing 2-1. Fortunately for the Flames, however, they were still able to qualify for the Finals later that day.
They edged out FC Alliance for second place in the group based on a better goal differential through the first two games. What this meant was they would get another shot at Knoxville FC in the Final.
Looking to avenge their only loss of the season the Flames came out of the gates quickly and scored within the first 5 minutes to take a 1-0 lead.
The Flames continued to play well throughout and a 1-0 lead turned into a 3-0 lead by halftime. In the second half they continued to battle and finished the game with a 4-1 victory and yet another tournament championship for the season.
Along with the CLAS Jamboree, Cleveland FC also took home titles this season at the Ocoee Cup and River Fest Classic, and finished unbeaten in the Scenic City Soccer League.
The Flames finished their Fall season with an overall record of 20 wins and just one loss.
