(Dec 5, 2016) There's nothing quite like Thanksgiving in Vegas. The boys of Eastside FC B99 Red took advantage of the 4-day holiday weekend to compete in and win the BU18 Gold Division of the 2016 Las Vegas Thanksgiving Classic.
The U18s, coached by Nathan Heck, got off to a slow start with a 1-1 draw against California Rush in their Friday opener, then swept three straight to emerge on top of 5-team Bracket A. The Eastside FC defense was stingy, allowing only two goals in bracket, while the team posted six goals. Then it was off to a showdown against FBSL Real Tuzos 99 of Arizona, where there was no shortage of goals scored. The sole Washington side in the age group earned the title with five goals against the Arizonan's four.
