The team were placed in a group with five other teams, all of which provided fierce competition and hard-fought games.

During the tournament, Pilgrim did not lose a single game, or even concede a single goal! However, as many of the games ended in a draw, Pilgrim finished as third overall place in their group, on goal difference.

The team played against William Barcroft in a challenging playoff for fifth place! Thanks to a goal from Taylor Sinclair and a wonderful save by Tommy-Jae Easton, they took a victorious win at 1-0.

Following his performance at the tournament, Tommy-Jae Easton has been given the role of captain after showing great leadership skills.

Pilgrim Academy are expected to enter many more tournaments this year.
