Championship glory tasted sweet for Perri Belzer and several other local athletes who participated in the Clash at the Border soccer tournament this past weekend.
"What I'll remember most is being able to play with my team and winning," said Belzer of Camas. "Getting first place was just awesome for us. We were all happy we got the result we wanted"
Belzer and Elise Schney both scored goals to lead the Vancouver Timbers 99 Red to a 2-0 victory against the Camas-Washougal Soccer Alliance Valencia in the U-13 Platinum championship game Sunday. Five other Vancouver Timbers teams earned first-place trophies from their respective brackets, and nine more Timbers teams finished in second place.
