FIRST PLACE AT THE COLORADO SHOOTOUT
RMSA U-12 BOYS RED
The U-12 Boys, coached by Roy Serna and Jeff Johnson, captured first place at the Colorado Shootout Tournament in a dramatic fashion on October 3, 2010. The team only allowed two goals during regulation time in the entire tournament and scored 12 goals. In the Final Game the cougars were tied 1-1 which sent the game into overtime. The overtime periods were scoreless, and the game went to "kicks from the mark". The cougars prevailed by scoring 4 goals vs 2 from the oponents.
Sweet victory indeed since the cougars defeated the same team that beat them in the finals at the Pride of the Rockies tournament in August of this year. That made this final game extra special and a memorable one. Congratulations to the U-12 Boys Red for being the best and for representing the RMSA so well.
RMSA U-12 Boys Black
Finish second at the Colorado Shootout Tournament
After a rough start in their first season in the Premier Division, the U-12 Boys Black found their stride and showed their true form during this tournament. They played very well in the Tournament’s Gold Division which earned them a spot in the final match. The team took second place. The cougars also captured first place at the Steamboat Mountain Tournament in July of this year. Keep on winning cougars; you are looking good!
We congratulate all the players and their families for a great tournament. Thank you coach Brian and coach Lance for your strong commitment to the team.

Back to Back
The U-12 Girls do it again. For the second year in a row, the U-12 Girls, win the Kelvin Norman Tournament. Being the defending champions, the players were aiming at successfully defending their title. They did so with pure determination and skill. Every player in the team worked hard, and truly played at their best, giving all a great thrill. The final game showed that this team is capable of achieving anything the set out to do. With three players out of commission, the team had no subsitutes for the secon half of the game. But they held back a relentless attack mounted by a great opposing team leading into a 2 to 1 victory for the Cougars.
We congratulate all the players, coach Sean Tiefel, and the parents for a well deserved victory. This success will certainly build the momentum and confidence as the team begins training for the Steamboat Mountain Soccer Tournament to be held in July of this year.
RMSA U-12 Option 1 Team were not to be kept out of the "Winners Circle" at the Kelvin Norman Tournament. They won 5 goals to 4 in a thriller with kicks from the mark. Regulation time ended in a 0-0 tie sending the game into PK’s. The first 5 payers from each team took their turn ending with both teams scoring 4 goals each. Then the second group of players took their turn. The opposing team missed, and the RMSA team scored with the first pair, giving the Cougars the victory and the championship. Congratulations to coach Glenn Stoner, assistant Stacey Love and the U-12 Girls for a great victory as the team prepares to move into the Competitive Division this Fall.
The RMSA U-11 Boys, under the direction of coach Brian Minter, have captured their division title. The team played their first season of competitive soccer in the CYS Classic South division finishing in first place with a record of 14-2-2. As a result, the team will be moving up to the CYS Premier 2 division for the Fall of 2010. Hard work and dedication by the players, their families and the coaching staff made this goal a reality. Great teams get better with time. That was the case with the U--11 Boys team. In fact, they improved even more during the second half of the season. After playing indoor soccer during the Winter, the team started their training outdoors very early in preparation for the outdoor season. They tied the first game and won the rest of their games!
