DES MOINES, Iowa – Tuesday, Sept. 12, 2017 – Des Moines Menace Academy teams were out in full force at the JUSC Boys Fall Cup for the second year in a row. Eight Menace Academy teams, of the 12 competing, reached their respective finals at Cownie Soccer Park on Sunday.

“I’m personally happy to see the positive growth for our club – not just in the number of players and teams, but mainly in how much passion our players bring with them to the soccer fields each weekend,” said Menace director of coaching Tomas Boltnar.

“It’s fun to participate in a local tournament and represent our club greatly, on and off the field. Thank you to all our coaches for the time they invest in our players, and thank you to all players and parents who are part of the Menace.”
