GREENSBORO — The Elkin Elite Soccer Club took home the championship in the U9 bracket of the Adidas Clash Soccer Tournament in Greensboro on Sunday.

The EESC, a development program under UK International Sports, was dominant the entire weekend, going undefeated, and capping it off with a 7-1 win in the championship game.

The weekend event was also in conjunction with the Big South Conference Championship game, a game that maybe in give or take ten years could feature some of the kids on either side of the soccer field.
