The NRU Travel Programs had a very busy weekend with nearly all of our teams competing in two matches!
The NRU 08, 07 and 06 White Teams went 2 - 3 in BRSL action this weekend, highlighted by the 08 Boys picking up a 9 - 0 win over SWVA Rush and the 07 Boys with a 9 - 0 victory against Rockbridge.
The Blue teams took the field on Saturday and Sunday, both at home in Blacksburg. On Saturday, our teams went a combined 10-4 against Shenandoah Valley United. All teams showed very well in their respective matches playing some really good soccer. On Sunday, the teams faced stiff competition against Valley FC coming away with 7 wins, 6 losses and 1 draw. The day was a tough one, weather conditions made playing difficult.
Performers of the weekend: 2004 Boys Team: Rowan Porter showed very well in defense and attack stepping into a new position at left back and Evan Rupe has an outstanding weekend in defense, both with the 04 boys (playing up an age group). They picked up a shutout Saturday victory on Saturday and an outstanding come from behind draw with Valley on Sunday.
Academy & Rec
Academy hosted SWVA Rush and Christiansburg over the past weekend. All U9 and U10 Academy teams had a great time playing two matches each on a chilly morning. Games were exciting, with many great goals being scored on both sides!
Rec had a fun weekend of games. It may have been cold, wet and rainy, but the kids had fun sliding around, scoring goals and everyone was happy to get matches in!
Another fun soccer weekend as it looks to be a rainy Saturday of games as NRU host VBR Star in a CCL fixture!
