Rock Springs Avengers U10 Boys, led by Coach Ryan Conrad, took first place in the silver division of the Cody Shootout last weekend in Cody, WY. In addition to the rain and the lightning, our players competed against teams from Casper, Powell, Worland and Buffalo.
The Avengers first test came from the Casper Blades on Saturday morning. The Avengers won 8-2. Jeff Hyatt scored four of the eight goals for the Avengers while the team’s unselfish play led to 5 assists. Ellie Kettering delivered 2 assists in the outing.
Powell’s Heart Mountain squad was up next. Six Avengers scored in the 7-0 win, including Rylan Kukkola scoring 2 goals. Hudson Conrad, Max Mikesell and Casen Hiser provided goalie, Hudson Garner, with near impenetrable defense only allowing one shot on goal during the game.
The Avengers continued their strong play against Worland in a 10-0 victory on Sunday morning. Jesus Duarte, Hudson Conrad, Hudson Garner, and Braxton Cordova scored multiple goals in the effort. Carter McBurnett had multiple shots on goal.
The Avengers played Buffalo for the championship on Sunday afternoon. The Avengers started out flat for the first 10 minutes before Hudson Garner electrified the team with an impressive stop on a penalty kick. The Avengers then cruised to an 8-0 victory and a championship win. Braxton Cordova and Jesus Duarte scored 3 goals a piece and Jeff Hyatt and Hudson Conrad struck with a goal a piece in the win.
The coaching staff is pleased with the progress the team is making in players holding positions, passing the ball and assists on goals. Coach Conrad would like to thank all the parents for their support in attending practices and tournaments.
Also, Coach Ryan Conrad would like to thank the parents of the 2 guest players, Braxton Cordova and Ellie Kettering, who traveled to Cody. The Cody Shootout Tournament win was truly a team effort.

We thank all who bought one of our raffle tickets to show their support to our soccer club. It all goes to the players at the end of the day and some new equipment for our soccer club.

The Avengers soccer organization would like to recognize the passing of Jack Brown who was a pioneer in the Avengers club start up and long time coach in the 1980's and 90's. Jack has left a positive mark on his players and people who were involved with the Avengers soccer club have much respect for his dedication to the community. Many memories will remain with us and we will all cherish the fun soccer trips and matches we shared with him as our coach and youth mentor. In his memory the Avengers organization will have his name engraved on our memorial at Crossroads Field. Our condolences go out to his family at this difficult time. Below is a picture of some of the players he impacted in a great way.
