The two Glenwood Springs U12 Boys teams joined together with their coaches and referees for a group photo just before the championship match in the Glenwood Springs Soccer Club Jamboree on Oct. 3 at CMC’s Spring Valley Campus. Both teams advanced through round-robin play and won semifinal matches to earn a berth in the finals. In the end, though, only one team could be champs, and the Glenwood Blue team won, 4-1. The boys represented the best of youth soccer as the match was played with skill and excellent sportsmanship.
