     It was another exciting and successful weekend for 13 Sawtooth United F.C. (SUFC) youth soccer teams during the Directors Cup tournament May 16-18 on the Optimist Fields off Hill Road in Boise.

     The three-day Idaho Youth Soccer Association tournament was designed for Gem State teams not playing in the IYSA-sponsored State Cup May 24-26 at the Simplot Sports Complex in Boise.

     And SUFC won its share of medals, since the Directors Cup first- and second-place teams all earned medals.

     The SUFC Boys’ U-13 team coached by Doug Stouffer and Eric Anderson went 3-0-1 with a 14-9 goals-against to capture its second tournament championship of the spring.

     SUFC defeated the Nationals West Unknowns 3-2 in the Sunday title game. The local U-13 boys had tied the same team 2-2 on Saturday. They also defeated BNSC Athletico 5-4 Friday and beat Red Middleton AC Milan by a 4-1 score earlier Sunday.

     The SUFC boys went 4-0-0 with a 23-6 goals-against in winning its division of the Canyon Rim Classic May 3-4 in Twin Falls. In that tourney, more than 200 SUFC players on 15 teams ages 9-16 took part.

     Three other SUFC squads placed second in their Directors Cup divisions at Boise.

     They were the U-16 boys with a 2-2-0 record including a 1-0 loss to FC Nampa in the championship game; the U-14 girls with a 2-1-1 mark including two 2-0 victories and a 4-0 loss to Idaho Rush Nero in the Sunday final; and the U-11 Boys Blue with a 1-1-2 record including a 2-1 loss to Idaho Rush Black U-10 in the finale.
