U9 Boys and U11 Boys Champions. U9 Girls finish 2nd.
Players mob Grady M. after his winning shot.
The Vinland Valley FC Academics had a marvelous showing in the recent Leawood/KC Soccer Fest. The U9 Boys dominated the competition, never allowing a single goal on their way to the championship. The U11 Boys avenged an earlier loss in a come-from-behind shootout victory. And the U9 Girls stormed through their pool and nearly won Vinland's 3rd gold medal of the weekend before giving up two late goals and falling 2-3 in the final.
