Hilltoppers Flourish At Tournament In Phoenix

on March 27, 2017 - 8:18am
By SHAWN HAILEY
 
Locally grown talent flourished at the 38th annual President’s Day Tournament in Phoenix, Ariz, where more than 400 teams participated from four countries and 25 states. On Sunday battling poor conditions, the 99s found a way to win 2-1 taking them to the championship match against an opponent they knew well, New Mexico Rush 00. After a weather shortened 60 minutes of scoreless soccer, the game was decided by kicks from the mark. Rio prevailed knocking in four goals while Rush was only able to tally two.
