On July 18, 2015, six young men were rewarded for a lot of hard work. Persevering through 90 degree heat and 107 degree heat index, this group took first place in the under 14 boys division at the Sporting Kansas City 3v3 Tournament held in Shawnee, Kansas. The team came from the local American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) branch at 47th Street South and Meridian. The open tournament included some of the best players from multiple states. Needing four wins to become champions, they succeeded with victories of 7 – 4, 6 – 5 (winning goal scored with two seconds left), 9 - 5, and 7 – 4.
