Breck Soccer Club falls in semis

BRECKENRIDGE – After getting a lucky break Sunday morning that allowed Breckenridge Soccer Club to reach the semifinals of its own tournament, the Dublin Football Club played the role of the black cat.

Breck started the round-robin play Saturday with a 1-1 record, but when Football Club Bounty upset West End Sunday morning, giving both teams a loss, new life entered into the hometown club.

“We had to have that to get a chance for the finals,” said team organizer Kim McGahey, who founded the tournament 24 years ago. “We had a good effort today, but we just didn’t finish some scoring opportunities.”

After the score was tied 1-1 at intermission, Dublin used a pair of second-half goals to eliminate McGahey and crew, 3-1.

Matt Vieset scored the only goal for Breck.

“We dominated the game,” McGahey said. “We had a lot of good scoring opportunities all game that somehow slipped by. We kind of let them back in the game.”

In the finals, Boulder County Force slammed Dublin 3-0. Next up for Breck’s soccer club is a tournament in Aspen, Aug. 2-3, and the Denver Kickers Tournament on Labor Day weekend. This fall, the club will play in the Colorado Amateur Soccer League.
