The Vienna Youth Soccer (VYS) Patriots Black, an under-13 girls travel soccer team, competed in the 2013 Jefferson Cup tournament, March 16-17, in Richmond, VA.
They were crowned Champions of the Platinum Division after four hard-fought games against teams from Virginia, New Jersey, and New York. After a 1-0 win and a stinging loss on Saturday, they rallied and battled to two 1-0 victories over their opponents despite cold temperatures, rain, and muddy fields Sunday.
