We have reached the midpoint of our Target USA Cup week tournament. Group play games end today and the playoffs start early tomorrow morning. Competition was high with teams working hard to gain a better placement in the knock-out rounds of the tournament. Even so, we have a new group of teams, players, referees, staff, and fans that make this event happen. Meet our 2019 Faces at the Cup for Thursday, July 18, 2019.
