HU hosts 6th Annual 7v7 tourney


With the sun shining and the temperatures just perfect for soccer, over 150  players on 16 teams gathered for the 6th Annual Huntington 7v7 Men’s Soccer Tournament.  Among those participating were three teams of past and present Forester players which combined to produce a 2-5-2 record on the day.  “I was encouraged by the great talent that was on display,” stated HU’s men’s soccer coach Russ Lawson. “The ability to run a quality tournament such as this is a nice feather in the cap for our program.  I envision this day only getting bigger as we continue to build on this tournament’s reputation.” 

It was an action-packed day of soccer.  The round robin pool play produced many classic battles with Mount Vernon Nazarene (2 teams), Tri-State, and Taylor eventually advancing to the playoffs.  Tri-State clashed with MVNU (2) in one semifinal game earning a berth into the finals with a 6-4  win. Joining Tri-State in the final was Taylor who was able to push past MVNU (1) by a score of 4-2. The finals saw Taylor claim the title with a 4-3 win over Tri-State.
