The MUSC Knights claimed the First Annual COPA PRIMAVERA Soccer Tournament.


The MUSC Knights hosted an eight team tournament over the weekend, pressing through the heat and temperatures to come out victorious in the First Annual COPA PRIMAVERA 2018 Soccer Tournament held at Evergreen Park.

The Knights went 4-0 in the tournament, bringing home the championship. The Knights route started with a win over EISL Charleston 10-0, then moved on to beat Casey, 11-0, putting the Knights into the semifinals against Arcola.

The Arcola match was a hard fought battle, back and forth through the first half. Both teams were hot and drained from the heat.  But the Knights were able to overcome and take the victory 3-1, advancing them to the championship game against Olney.

Both teams were ready. Olney had a couple of opportunities but could not match the strength of the Knights, as they steamed-rolled over their opponent, 4-1.

The Knights finished the tournament with 28 goals scored and only allowing opposing teams two. The Knights end the season 16-1-0
