Idaho Rush U17 Boys Shine In January College Showcase
Making their first appearance at the Winter College Showcase outside of Portland, the Idaho Rush U17 boys along with Head Coach Lee Riley recorded a perfect record winning all four games against top Oregon/Washington teams. Of the 32 teams competing, Idaho placed second in points finishing only behind Seattle United.
Registering a 9-1 goals for/ goals against ratio, the U17’s recorded three shutouts and scored multiple goals in each contest. Playing in front of college coaches from as far away as Minnesota, all players had standout moments and many received attention from those coaches attending.
Muga Katanga led the team in scoring over the weekend, recording three goals. Others getting in on the action were Sam Rucklos, Luke Murdock, Damien Bautista and Dante Pennell. Kamden Hundersmarck gave up only one goal over four games, assisted by a stingy back line that helped keep opposing teams at bay.
The U17’s next embark on league play in March with the goal of winning the Idaho State Cup for their division and moving on to the Far West Regional Championships to be played in Boise in late June.
