September 8th 2015: The start of the new season is upon us and we have our first Tournament appearance by a Miami Shores team. Coach Dani Rodriguez's U8 Orange team played in the U9 Future Stars Gold division playing versus Miami Stike Force, Kendall Hammocks, and Wellington Wave U8 teams. In the first match, the U8 Orange trounced the Miami Strike Force team 3-0 with a hat-trick from Zayden Gamble and assists from Harry, Zavian, and Santiago. In the second game of the group the U8's faced a very good Hammocks team eventually falling 2-3 with goals from Zayden and Santiago. In the final group game the U8 Orange played Wellington Wave U8 and also fell by the score of 2-3 with goals from Santiago and Eduardo Esposito. Overall the team put in a strong performance in a tough category. Many players were still missing from the squad that could have made a difference in the performance and ,with some close games by 1 goal difference, the final result could have been different.
