Silt Blue Rapids win division at Aspen Cup

The Silt Youth Sports Association would like to recognize the U10 Silt Blue Rapids Soccer Team for winning the Aspen Cup Tournament in their division on Sunday, Sept. 21. Our club would first like to thank the Aspen United Soccer Club and Aspen Parks and Recreation for hosting such a wonderful event. Our young men, coached by Fil Meraz and Luke Reilly, played a total of four games, including the final game versus the Glenwood Springs Mean Green Team. Both teams put up an amazing fight. Regular game time ended in a tie, then went to triple 5-minute overtime periods, and finally the match was decided in a penalty kick shoot-out. Our young men played with heart and displayed amazing character throughout the day. Thank you also to the families of the players for their unwavering support of the players and of this program!
