The Metropolitan Oval U-9 boys won the 2015 Soccer Coliseum indoor tournament. Coach Sammy was delighted with his team’s performance and praised the boys for playing the game the right way: up-tempo, possession based soccer. He was quick to point out the boys’ impressive technical ability going to goal, drawing attention to their off-ball movement and skillful dribbling that led to dangerous scoring opportunities and a lot of goals. What’s more, the boys showed a consistent desire to pressurize their opponents immediately after losing possession. In a post tournament interview, Coach Sammy said, “it was a pleasure to see the boys compete and put on a great performance throughout the tournament.”
Everyone at Met Oval wishes the U-9 boys a big congratulations! The team will look to build on this success when they return to action again on February 7-8th in the NYC Indoor Classic.
