It was a blast to be your hosts for the weekend. Hopefully everyone made it home okay and is rested up, iced down and not too sunburned after a wonderful weekend of the beautiful game here in Houston.
Thanks so much to everyone who participated in the HFA Tournament this year - players, coaches, referees, fans, and volunteers. It was great to see so many new teams come from so far away this year: Lubbock, El Paso, Amarillo, Eagle Pass, Louisiana, San Antonio, Austin and even Juarez, Mexico. We really appreciate your support and hope to see you all again next year!
Thanks in particular to our sponsors. Taco Bell’s generous financial support enabled us to keep the prize money the same this year, which was a huge help in the current economy. Soccer 4 All donated some great stuff for the team goodie bags and all the soccer balls used on Saturday. The Houston Dynamo are great partners in soccer - thanks for bringing JeVaughn Watson out on Friday night. But special thanks must be made to Methodist’s Center for Sports Medicine trainers who were on site bandaging, taping, sopping up blood, massaging and encouraging players all weekend long. If you’re in the area be sure to take advantage of the Methodist services - they have offices all over Houston.
The scores, highlights and photos are posted on this page - enjoy! See you next year, same time, same place.
