OGRCC’s U11 Boys Blue Thunder Soccer team heads to CT Cup Finals

The OGRCC’s U11 Boys Blue team won their Connecticut Cup semi final game this past Saturday, Oct. 29 vs the undefeated Bethel Bandits. The boys played the game away at Rourke Field in Bethel. Despite the big hometown crowd, the Greenwich fans made their presence known during the tense match. Undeterred by an early first half goal by Bethel, the OGRCC Thunder defeated Bethel for a spot in the finals, with a score of 4-2.

The highlight of the game was a beautiful textbook 3rd goal by the Thunder team. Every player on the Greenwich team touched the ball before sinking it into the back of the net. That was when the momentum of the game seemed to shift.

The Thunder team is currently ranked second in the standings for the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association Southwest Division (out of 68 teams), with one week left to play in the regular season. The U11 boys will be taking on the Trumbull United Scorpions in the CT Cup Finals at the Farmington Sports Arena in Farmington this Saturday, Nov. 5 at 12:30 p.m.

The OGRCC Thunder won 4-3 over 4th ranked Trumbull United when the two teams met earlier in the season. It should be an exciting rematch. A big congratulations to the team!
