SPRING VALLEY, Colorado ” Colorado Mountain College will continue its annual college club soccer tournament this Saturday and Sunday at its home campus with 11 different men’s teams and four women’s squads in participation.
“We’re trying to bring good soccer to the valley for people to come out and see,” CMC head coach Steve White proclaimed. “It also gives the opportunity for the teams from Wyoming and Utah to meet some people from this area. The Weber State club and Colorado Gold team have won national titles before and this allows them to see some of that competition that they normally wouldn’t be able to.
“Because of the venue we have, it really is an attractive event.”
The play begins at 9 a.m. Saturday morning with three men’s games. CMC will kick it off against Western State on field No. 1. Matches will continue throughout the day and Sunday. All told, 30 matches will be played, including the championship games at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. for the men’s and women’s divisions, respectively.
The men’s teams will be broken up into two different divisions. The gold division will be composed of eight teams: University of Colorado Gold, CU black, Weber State A, Weber State B, Colorado State University B, Fort Lewis College Club, Mesa State College Club and Salt Lake Community College.
The blue division will have four teams: CMC, Western State College, Air Force Academy Prep and CSU’s C team.
On the women’s side, four teams will compete for first place in just a single division known as the gold division. The teams are: University of Colorado white, Air Force Academy Prep, Western Wyoming Community College and Western State College.
The featured game of the weekend will be the CU gold team vs. the Weber State squad at 3 p.m. Saturday. Both teams, as mentioned, have won club national championships in the past and have good teams again this year.
