Rare early lead holds up for Force FC title
[SUPER-20 LEAGUE] Force FC Academy of Michigan defeated Pacesetter SC of Ohio, 2-0, in the 2013 Super-20 League final at IMG Academy.
Championship MVP Bubacarr Jobe provided the only offense Force FC needed when he scored in the 15th minute and Nazeem
Bartman added an insurance goal on the final kick of the game.
After playing five games in four days, including two overtime periods in a semifinal win against the Toronto
Lynx on Saturday, Force FC coach Chris Edwards knew the early part of the match was key for his team that traveled to Florida with only 14 players.
“At the start, we knew we didn’t have enough fitness, so we knew we had to have a good start.” Edwards said. “We were hoping to get a lead, because we
haven’t done that the whole tournament. Today, to actually get one and hold one was a tough one.”
-- With four goals in three games, forward Zachary Zurita of Beachside FC claimed the tournament’s Golden Boot.
