In the finals, against International of Florida, after a close opening 45 minutes, the team pulled away in the second half to gain a convincing 5-2 victory. FC Georgia United Over 60 has now won this tournament three times in the last four years. Besides winning the trophy, the team also took home $1,000.00 in prize money, which the club is donating to local area charities.
FC Georgia United Over 65 Team
The Over 65 team, that played against and lost to the Over 60 team in the 2012 finals of this competition, narrowly missed out on being a finalist for a second year in a row. The team ended up a close second in the other bracket. Only a missed penalty in the 92nd minute of one of their three matches prevented them from advancing to the finals.
