Bermuda’s Brazilian Football School travelled to Philadelphia last week to participate in the Eastern Development Cup (EDP) in Hammonton, New Jersey. 

The tournament saw a total of 264 teams compete during two days of competitive play. 

BBFS competed in the Ruby bracket (8v8) and Silver bracket (11v11) vs. teams from the USA and Canada. 

The BBFS U11s recorded two  wins and two losses to finish third in the Ruby bracket (8 teams). 

After ending day one without a win, the boys bounced back to light up the tournament with some outstanding technical displays.

Jarryd Richardson, Khiry Hollis, Amir Thomas, Ajani Burchall and Riley Robinson were the outstanding players for the U11s. BBFS, after being defeated 6-5 by Match Fit Academy FC of NJ on day one, gained revenge by defeating MF 7-4 in the consolation final.

The BBFS U14s went down in all three matches and ended the tournament without a win. There were notable performances from San-tze Burgess, Deandre Ball, Micah Mendes, Chemarl Henry and Ashon Hart.
