The Green Circle Environmental U-12 Boys Civics team won gold at the Michigan Challenge Cup in Lansing this past weekend.
Despite some very challenging weather and a short bench the team was able to take home their first tournament win. The Civics finished in first place after round robin play with 2 wins and a tie. The Civics beat the Lansing TNT Dynamite 3-0 for their first win.
Lucas Stefano scored all 3 goals in the victory with the shutout going to Aaron Grawbarger. The second 5-1 win came against the Novi Jags with Lucas Stefano contributing 4 goals with the single going to Paul Zappacosta. The tie against the Canton Celtic came as a result of the game being cancelled due to weather.
The Civics advanced to the finals to face the Lansing TNT again, however, the team would not be denied their first tournament win with a 4 – 1 victory. Lucas Stefano again led the charge for the team by scoring 3, while Nick Smith contributed one goal.
The team looks forward to their next tournament in London on September
