On September 26th, Holloway Houston’s soccer team played the final of the Houston Dynamo Corporate Cup at the BBVA Compass Stadium. Our journey to the final as an undefeated team with zero goals allowed made us the favorites to win, and we did!
The Corporate Cup is a corporate soccer tournament held once a year by the Houston Dynamo at their training facility, Houston Sports Park. It is put on to promote wellness and team-building amongst co-workers with the proceeds of the tournament being donated to Dynamo Charities.
The journey started on September 13. Holloway Houston’s team won their first game 7-0. Later in the day, the second game was won 9-0, and the third game 7-0. The results from the three games positioned us in first place overall and sent us to play the semi-final, which was won 2-0.
On September 26th, Holloway Houston’s team stepped on the pitch and reached half-time, with a then-score of 0-2. After a rusty start, our team came back to win the game, 3-2! We would like to thank all the players who participated in the tournament — our employees, our other volunteer soccer players, and our rival teams that provided us with a spirited competition.
