In November 11th, the Hannahville Ice and Turf sports complex in Wells hosted Bayside Soccer’s inaugural soccer tournament. The tournament featured three divisions of play for 12U, 14U, and 16U, with teams from Iron Mountain’s 906 FC, Houghton FC, and Bayside Soccer and its affiliate Delta United Soccer Academy participating.
The goal of the tournament was to provide a fun and competitive event for players while raising funds for the high school team. Organizer Amy Blahnik expressed her excitement about hosting the tournament and looking forward to organizing more in the spring and next fall.
The games were played in a round-robin style, with three-on-three matches. The top two teams at the end of group play had a playoff for first place. The results were as follows: 906 FC won the 12U group, Houghton FC Red won the 14U group, and the 16U winners were from Bayside – Delta United Soccer Academy.
