Fall Playoff results-
Best Playoffs EVER!!! Some underdogs overachieved and several favorites delivered.
Here is a call out to our Desert sands Families and the quality of our Coaches- The kids competed at a high level and left it on the field. Competition makes us better and despite the heightened emotions good sportsmanship was on display in vast majority of these highly contested games. The new playoff structure added to the drama where higher seeds had to play their way into the brackets while top seeds earned byes. We had a #17, #13, and a#11 seed make it to the finals. This competitive balance is a tribute to our Coaches who stayed focus on continuous growth and development. Thank you and register NOW and for our upcoming Spring Season! www.desertsandsfnl.com
