October 10, 2016

The players of Herndon Youth Soccer's U15 Thunder White team, coached by Total Futbol's Eric Dougnaglo, pose with their Finalist medals at the NVSC Battlefield Tournament on October 9.
 
Seven teams coached by Total Futbol competed in some of the most competitive local tournaments and delivered solid results against high calibre opponents. The teams competed in the Discover Cup, the Rael Vodicka Memorial WAGS Tournament and the NVSC Battlefield Tournament. Taken together, the teams posted a 15-3-8 record over 26 games, cumulatively scoring 58 goals and allowing 33.

The players of Herndon Youth Soccer's U14 Hurricanes White team, coached by Total Futbol's Tina Valente, pose with (and, in some cases, attempt to eat) their Finalist medals from the highly competitive Rael Vodicka Memorial WAGS Tournament on October 10. The team advanced out of group play to compete in the Championship game on Columbus Day, falling short by just one goal to the eventual winner.
