Last weekend a group of Seattle, Eugene, and Bay Area high school guys put together a team named "Super Best Friends" to play at the Eugene, OR Solstice tourney in the adult open elite division. They ended up playing a juniors team from the Vancouver, BC area in the showcase game. Both teams had players that were playing for their respective national teams at Junior Worlds this year.
I have heard some details from one source and I think people reading this blog would also like to hear details, so I started this thread. So someone speak up.
A link to some pix from the tournament: http://freeheelimages.smugmug.com/gallery/1591193/8/77232823
www.ultivillage.com has a play from the game as clip of the day. I think you can also pay to download highlights from the game at uvtv.
Here is the score reporter from the UPA results database: http://www3.upa.org/scores/tourn.cgi?div=127&id=2625
It would be great if we could get some of the Vancouver, BC youth players or coaches involved in this blog too. They havea great scene up there though it is still mostly coed from what I know.
