It was good to see Capital Blue 2013 finally get a chance to play YJ 2013. Capital won the Club Championship this summer and YJ won the u15 championship in Orlando defeating a team of talented rising 8th and 9th graders from Northern VA in the final. Capital defeated YJ 8-2 in the President's Cup this past weekend in Naples.
Capital Blue 2013 cruised to an 8-2 victory over the Yellow Jackets, paced on offense by Besser Dyson (3 goals), Margaret Tucker Fogarty (2), and Carly Reed, Layne Vorhees, and Riley Christopher with 1 each. The Capital defense played particularly well. Wyatt Whitley, assigned to cover YJ and U-19 National Team attacker Courtney Fortunato, held the YJ star scoreless. Capital had no trouble moving the ball down field in transition, winning almost all the 50-50 balls and rarely, if ever, turning it over. It appeared Capital again playing like the team it was when it won the National Club Championship early in the summer.
