They went on to the Consolation bracket only to meet heartbreak again and lost their final game in Florida. Coach Paul said the team has really come together and has a bright future. Everybody who played against them or saw them play said these kids play hard and compete to win. Congrats to the 14U guys on a great season. As for the 13U squad they traveled down to VA only to meet tough competition and finished 2-3. They were unable to get out of their pool but advanced to play in the Classic Bracket and made a great run going 2-1 and losing a tough one in the Quarterfinals. Congrats on to the young guys and Coach Derrick, Coach Mike & Coach Benji on a great season. All in all the TEAM FRENJI name is out there and growing strong. Great season guys!!!!
