On a beautiful Father Day morning in Boise, ID three (3) teams from Utah took the field at the Simpot Sports Complex in quest of Regional Presidents Cup championship. When the final whistles sounded, La Roca U17 Boys and Wasatch U13 Girls walked away with their championship. In the Boys U17 match, La Roca beat a talented team representing Nevada 1-0. Wasatch U13 Girls gave up an early 1-0 lead to a Cal South equalizing goal before putting it away late and winning 2-1.
In the third match of the day, Rampage U17 Girls played toe-to-toe with the much bigger team from Washington and lost in the final minutes 0-1.
Utah Youth Soccer is proud of all of the teams that represented Utah in the 2013 Regional Presidents Cup and wish both La Roca and Wasatch SC the best of luck at National Presidents Cup. The National Presidents Cup will be held in Auburndale, FL July 10-14. http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/PresidentsCup/
