Blue Demons End Fall Season with Strong Showing at Welsh Cup

November 30, 2015 — The Blue Demons wrapped up their fall season with a pre-Thanksgiving outing at the 5th Annual HSC Welsh Cup. Facing a very tough draw the Demons acquitted themselves quite nicely.

First up was Nether United 0304 Black, who finish 2nd in Delco Division 1 this fall. Nether struck twice in the first half with the Blue Demons responding with one early in the second. Both teams had their chances as the game got increasingly tense, but it was Nether putting the game away with a late goal off a corner kick to secure the 3-1 victory.

Next up, was Lower Merions Little Liverpool, a team that had beaten the Demons earlier that fall and had finished second in their own fall division. Both teams scored in the opening half, with the Demons notching the game’s first goal and Little Liverpool countering. A back-and-forth second half saw the Blue Demons scoring on a beautiful through-ball leading to a breakaway goal, and the 2-1 victory. The Demons closed out the day with a match against the highly ranked Haverford Heatwave. In a very tight game the boys fell 1-0.

All in all, it was a great finish to our fall season. The boys deserve a ton of credit and congratulations for their hard work and accomplishments this season.
