Congratulations to Eclipse 91 White Boys 

  
 


Coaches John Ring and Greg Welte are proud of their U18 team and the results of their final, fall season. U18 clinched first place of their Division I, Competitive, bracket. The team was undefeated winning their flight of eight with six wins and a tie.
Nothing, not even Hurricane Ike, interfered with the team's momentum.   As U18 White looks toward their final Spring season with Eclipse, the coaches and players will strive for an outstanding end to their Eclipse careers.
Well done, 91 White Boys!

Eclipse 94 girls help out at Houston Food Bank, September 28th, 2008
Shown are members of the Eclipse 94 Black that participated in the Houston Food Bank drive to provide relief to families and individuals who are suffering as a result of hurricane Ike.  The HFB is supplying food and other necessities to their partner agencies and to temporary shelters.  The Eclipse girls volunteered hours of their time right after their Premier Game on Sunday September 28, 2008.  Our girls helped with warehouse operations and helped pack disaster relief boxes for individuals and families whose lives were turned upside down by the hurricane.  Although this is a small effort relative to the need, we do appreciate the time our players have given for this cause…we are proud of you ladies!

Albion Weekend Tournament, May 27, 2008
Eclipse 96 Red Girls closed out a strong year with a trip to the championship finals of the Albion Memorial Weekend Tournament (see photo).  Placing first in its U12 Competitive Group B, scoring 9 goals and allowing none, Eclipse led 1-0 during the championship final, until a late PK tied the score sending it into overtime.  In overtime, Eclipse went ahead 2-1 but unfortunately allowed Texas Heatwave to score on a late corner kick to send the game to PK tiebreakers, and falling short.  This followed a very successful run in the Eastern District President's Cup tournament: starting as the 12th seed, Red defeated the 14th seed, the 5th seed (Heatwave's first team), and the 2nd seed (Spindeltop's first team) to make it to the semi-finals, before falling to the eventual Eastern District champion, Space City's first team.

 
 
 


Congratulations also to the Eclipse 98 Black U11 Boys who were also finalists in the Albion Memorial Day Tournament.
