At the end of the day Chris Toth and the NBSL Purple team lifted the trophy thanks to an amazing performance by MVP, and one of the three Top Scorers, Chris Albinston.
Over 30 players from Florida, California and Virginia Beach travelled to South Florida for this one-day tournament. Leading up to this event, players participated in a Touchpoint Camp held by US Soccer under coach Francis Farberoff.
“Having this event was important to the players to have the opportunity to compete at a high level prior to going to Dubai”, the head coach commented following the camp.
Nicolas Perea and Andres Navas were the other two top scorers with four goals at the end of the day. Bahamian keeper Michael Butler took home the Golden Glove while newcomer Sasha Karlov from Virginia Beach took home the Rising Star.
