TheGoodLifeFC! Final Four Finish At Fanatic Cup 2013

TheGoodLifeFC! Final Four Finish At Fanatic Cup 2013Despite our surprise quarter final finish last year and our decent placement in the first adidas Fanatic Premier League in NYC this Spring, TheGoodLifeFC! was not on anyone’s radar to be a contender in this year’s adidas Fanatic Cup. But on Saturday, July 20th, our eight man (and woman) squad trounced through our bracket and breezed through the quarterfinal to make it into the final four out of 28 teams from NYC, England, Germany, and Japan. Unfortunately we met our match in a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat that simply saw the luck go to our opponent as we failed to convert several goal attempts and allowed one to end our bid for victory. Even with the loss, we had plenty to celebrate with our 14-4 goal differential, victories over adidas Originals, Three Kings, BLK DNM, and Borderline Films and an all around awesome day of friends, fam and fun at beautiful Pier 5 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Congrats to Timbo, Dan, Juan, Santiago, Sara, Jen, Jeff, Noah, and Coach Craig and everyone else involved with TheGoodLifeFC! for building something from nothing and taking it even closer to the top. Relive the day in film by Craig Wetherby as well as a quick glimpse of the team in action from Eddie Grams after the jump.
