Lake Superior Open

The Lake Superior Open soccer tournament was held June 24-26 in Duluth, with all 13 Blast teams participating!

As always, this is a very challenging tournament, and also featured mixed age brackets, with many of the Blast teams facing older club teams.

Despite the challenging schedule and weather, the Blast continued to improve and prove that our teams can handle the higher level of competition.  

Five of our Blast teams placed in the top 4 of their respctive divisions, led by two Runner Up finishes by the U19 boys team and the U12 boys team.

It was a great tournament season for our Blast club, and now our players move on to the fall Blast club season, middle school and high school  soccer teams in Brainerd!
