BUFC Pumas Kick Off Busy Season at Disney

Strand's First Girls Premier League team has Long Road Ahead

The Beach United Football Club's top girls soccer squad, the U-17 Pumas, kicked off a long season of travel soccer in style over labor Day weekend at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex.

Playing against some of the best teams in Florida, the Pumas battled to an 0-2-1 record in the tournament but picked up valuable experience before heading into a tough Premiere League schedule.

The BUFC Pumas are the first girls team from the Grand Strand to qualify for the Premier League, which features the top 12 teams from Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

While most of BUFC's squads open league play this weekend, the Pumas start Piedmont Conference play on Sept. 15 in Hampton, GA.
