The Fremont Soccer Club U11 Team under the direction of Coach Andy Klimek and assistant Coach Brandie Paulsen traveled to North Muskegon to compete in the Great Lakes Coed Soccer League Tournament Finals. Season competition included teams such as the Fruitport Fury, Mona shores, Oak Ridge, Orchard view, Ludington, Coopersville, and North Muskegon. Fremont Soccer Club U11 finished with 5 wins and 1 loss. The tournament qualifier games had a few surprises in store as the team played a portion of their morning game in a pop up hail storm. The game was called before either team had scored resulting in a tie. The next two games were shutouts with Fremont reigning victorious 5-0 and 9-0.
Tournament Finals were held at the Fury Futbol Club in Muskegon. Klimek’s team played an intense game losing 1-2 against North Muskegon and placing second in the Great Lakes Coed Soccer League Tournament Finals.
“Medals are never given, they can only be earned,” said Coach Andy Klimek. “This group of 9 and 10 year olds have done just that. This is one of the most unselfish group of individuals that I have ever had the pleasure and honor of working with. They play as a team to be able to succeed at a sport for which they truly have a passion.”
