Brainerd Blast teams medal at Blaine tournament
Twelve U11 and older boys and girls Brainerd Blast soccer teams traveled to Blaine on June 21. With Sunday's pool games rained out, the teams finished with a 15-2-12 record.
All four teams received championship medals: U11 girls defeated WSC Strikers 3-1; U12 girls defeated St. Croix Galaxy 4-2; U12 boys defeated River Falls 3-0; and U14 girls defeated Mankato Golddiggers 5-1.
Both records in championship games played and championship games won at one tournament for The Brainerd Blast.
Another tournament note: three girls (Megan Tschida, Kate Smith and Grace Sundberg) stepped up to help the U15 boys team because they were short on players.
