Bruins beat T.C. Williams after surrendering pair of two-goal leads.
Nico Quashie, who has played for Coach Roby (Brian Robertson, President of Barca FC) and Barca '97 Elite since he was 10 yrs old, led his Lake Braddock High School Bruins team to the Conference 7 Championship by scoring the game winning goal in the last minute of the second five-minute overtime period. With the ball coming off a header from his Bruins teammate, Quashie used his left foot to beat a trio of T.C. Williams Titans and lift the Bruins to a 4-3 victory over the Titans.
Quashie, who will be heading to Virginia Tech this fall to play with the Hokies, finishes out his high school and youth travel careers with Barca by finishing 1st Team All-Met, 1st Team All-State, 1st Team All-Region, and 1st Team All-Conference.
Congratulations to Nico and all of our Barca '97 Elite players who are heading off to college to continue their soccer careers! We're proud of you guys!

Lower Marion Magic sitting in 2nd Place in the Division, anticipating yet another win to propell them to the top of the league, overlooked this a small contingency of the Barca FC 97 ELite U18 team.

Pride in your team and Pride in your club can go a long way. Took to the field they did! After 90 minutes of brilliant moments of play on both sides, the Barca Boys shattered the hopes of the home town team with a 3-1 win. Baltimore Celtics now can lay claim to another Region I Champions League title, many thanks to Barca FC. A job well done boys!!
