The Sawtooth United F.C. (SUFC) U-10 boys won their four-team round-robin Friendship Cup tournament last weekend in Pocatello.
The boys had three wins with a combined score of 10-1. Two of the wins were shutouts.
Coach Kelley Sinnott said, "Our goalkeeper James Everitt was fantastic. He had a shutout in our first game and stopped a penalty kick as well."
Tiernan Naghsh led the title team's attack with four goals. Other players were Sam Hebert, Wyatt Parish, Ike Buxton, Taylor Koth, Colton Cherry, Jake Blackburn and Charlie Stumph, plus coaches Mike Sinnott and Anne O'Sullivan.
Sinnott said, "Overall we did a great job of improving from our previous tournament in Twin Falls and made some good connecting passes."
The coach oversees 20 U-10 boys in the SUFC program and they were split into two teams for the Friendship Cup. Sinnott said the best both teams played was when they played each other in the final game of the round robin in the Gate City.
Participating on the other team were Hayden Baker, Raul Castro, Cooper Dart, Dawson Hicks, Alvaro Jiraldo, Mario Macias, Sam Robideaux, Chandler Stevens, Flynn Stewart and Dane Thompson.
This team had two very exciting games prior to their final match-up. The first game ended in a tie, and the boys got their first taste of a "shoot-out" to break the tie. In the second game, the boys were tied until the last minute when their opponents scored to win 2-1.
