BIFC nabs eight championships at Redmond tourney

Bainbridge Island Football Club recently returned from Redmond with eight championships and three finalists.

BIFC had more than 20 teams competing in the Crossfire Select Cup.

The tournament was held at 60 Acres, a complex of 26 fields, and featured a total of 265 teams from across Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Hawaii during the Crossfire Select Cup, which is held every year on the last weekend of July.

“Bainbridge families moved from field to field to spread the support and cheering for our boys and girls teams participating over a hot weekend in Redmond,” said Ian McCallum, BIFC’s director of coaching.

“Three BIFC teams featured in the bronze bracket semi-finals, unfortunately pitting two of our Blue and White teams against each other,” McCallum said.
