The color is silver for two soccer medals

Won by SUFC at Idaho Falls Shootout


Two Sawtooth United F.C. youth soccer teams earned the silver for finishing second in their divisions during last weekend's Idaho Falls Shootout soccer tournament in wind-blown eastern Idaho.

Coach Tizz Miller's U16 girls scored eight goals in three preliminary contests and went all the way to the championship contest before falling to Extreme 2-1. Goalkeeper Kathryn Farmer was a standout with two shutouts for the local girls.

After falling behind 2-1 in the second half, "we had plenty of chances to score the rest of the half but couldn't finish. It was a good game but we wanted gold," said coach Miller.

Coach Greg Gvozdas' U14 Girls' Gold squad made off with a pair of 1-0 wins on goals by Grace Lagodich and Kelly Chapman, but they lost to Kaos 4-0 Saturday and fell again 4-0 to Kaos in the championship game.

Ten Sawtooth United F.C. soccer teams competed in the 76-team field. The Bonneville Youth Soccer League sponsored the 27th annual Idaho Falls Shootout, which was formatted in 15 divisions from U12 to U19.

The five SUFC girls' teams went 4-4-2 the first day, Saturday, while the boys' teams went 1-6-3 for an overall record of 5-10-5 in the 20 games played Saturday. On Sunday the local teams went 3-8-1 for a total Idaho Falls record of 8-18-6.

Final spring tournament for SUFC teams is the 2006 Idaho Youth Soccer Association President's Cup May 19-21 primarily at the new Sunway Soccer Complex in Twin Falls.
