We are extremely proud of our two teams representing Beach United FC in Dallas. 

BUFC Crush - won all 3 divisional games  and progressed to the semifinals this morning. Unfortunately, their strong run came to a sad ending losing this morning. It was a wonderful achievement for the girls. They represented Beach United FC, Myrtle Beach and South Carolina with class.

BUFC Strikers - Won 1 game and lost two. All three divisional games were close games. It was a great experience for the boys. Our boys battled hard against very good teams. They too, represented the club and state with class. 

We are so proud of our teams. We will be back soon, Go Beach!!!
