Bianchi's 96s finish 2nd in Nomads

It was a great weekend for the 96 Red Boys team at the Nomads Showcase Tournament last weekend. The team, coached by Vince Bianchi, finished second, falling to top 15 team Pateodores Blues. “We ran out of steam but we played hard and didn’t embarrass ourselves,’’ Bianchi said. “The defensive effort was amazing.’’ The team played six games in three days and had only three substitutes. The team lost its first game to nationally ranked Sacramento Reds (3-2) but stormed back to win four straight games, including a 1-0 win over the Reds.
