Sawtooth United shivers in Idaho Falls

Youth soccer tournament

Sawtooth United F.C. traveled to cold, windy Idaho Falls this past weekend to join 82 Idaho teams competing in the Presidentís Cup Tournament.

Strong showings were made by the U16 boys and U14, U18 girlsí teams with all three teams making it to the tournament semi-finals.

For the U14 girls, Aimee Evans was an offensive weapon scoring against Odyssey and Pumas. Lexie Praggastis and Charlotte Gourlay each scored two goals for their U18 team to help them along to the semis.

For the U16 boys, the scoring was plentiful with Spencer Cordovano netting two hat tricks against Mountain Home and PVSC. Teammate Spencer Flade also had six goals on the weekend, scoring two in each of his teamís three games.


Results from Idaho Falls:

U11 girls (0-2-1): Excellent play from goalkeeper Halsey Pierce kept games close. Pierce managed to score the teamís lone goal in its third game of the weekend, a 1-1 draw against Twin Falls Rapids.

U13 girls (1-2): Jasmine Campbell, Ali Maricich, Nellie Brown and Ainsley Gourlay combined for four goals in a close 4-3 win over Odyssey.

U14 girls (2-1): The girls made it to the tournament semi-finals with strong offensive play from Aimee Evans. She and Jessica Curran scored in a 2-1 win over Odyssey. Other U14 scorers were Elsa Sweek, whose lone goal kept the Idaho Pride team at bay 1-0, along with Samantha Johnson.

U18 girls (2-1): Making it to the semis with two victories on the strong play of Charlotte Gourlay and Lexie Praggastis, the SUFC girlsí offense was eventually topped by Wolfpack in a close 4-3 loss. Irlande King and Danielle Maniere each found the net against Boise and Wolfpack.

U11 boys (0-3): Outstanding play from sweeper Spyder Turco kept the boysí third game against Boise close.

U12 boys (0-2): Tanner Flanigan was Man of the Match in the 6-1 loss to Osprey Blue. Teammate Chase Caulkins took the Man of the Match honors against Osprey White, a 3-0 setback.

U13 boys (1-2): Midfielder Colter Brehmer brought his A-game for the entire weekend and played a solid tournament. Brehmer and teammates Rafael Barriga and Austin Grill each had a goal in the boysí 3-2 win over Odyssey.
