Defending Washington State Challenge Cup Champions, the Mercer Island United 16U boys team, began the new season with a trip to the Snohomish Big Foot tournament held Aug. 15-19.
After beating FC Edmonds 1-0 in the semifinal the United faced off with WP Fury, a team well known to the United players. After the first half the team from Mercer Island was up 1-0, and had several early chance in the beginning of the second half, but couldn't find a way to add a second goal. Despite strong offensive advances by the Fury, United goalie Evan Condon held them off, giving United the 1-0 win.
