The Patriot FC U13 Girls Red won the SMG Futsol League Division Championship in Warminster earlier this month. Fustol is a modified form of soccer played with five players per side on a smaller indoor field.
“Futsol is fast-moving and a good complement to our regular soccer training,” said Tony Ries, head coach of the U13 girls. “The smaller, fast-paced format forces the players to have tight ball control, and improves their overall ball skills. We are thrilled our team won the division, we worked hard to get here.” Headquartered in Washington Crossing, Patriot FC has nearly 500 intramural players between the ages of four to 18, as well as more than 300 travel players representing 23 teams.
