The Rush Northville U12 Boys Classic Northville team travel to Cincinnati Ohio for the TFA United Cup. The first game our defender made a brave attempt to clear the ball but resulted in an own goal and with us losing 0 to 1. Undaunted, they pressed on to win 4 to 1 in their next game. In the third game we were paired against our brothers, Downriver Rush U12 Boys, resulting in a bitter sweet and very close win of 1 to 0. The final game was against a Toledo team. Goals did not come in the first half even though we were the dominate team. Early in the second we went up 2 goals, we continued to seek goals, then with 3 minutes to go Toledo slipping one in, making the final minutes of play tense as they felt a swing in their direction. When the final whistle blew, a wave of surreal triumph went through the boys for their first championship and the acquiring of hardware. I am very proud of these boys, they showed maturity and sportsmanship beyond their years.
