FMC, Revolution win 3v3 Challenge
ROCKINGHAM — The fast-paced soccer showdown at Browder Park this past weekend saw FMC and Revolution win the open division and the youth division, respectively.
There were five teams — with a mixture of adults and teens — in the open divison, while the youth division featured two teams of under-16 girls and four teams of under-14 boys. Boolin Bros were runners-up in the open division — Dream Killers finished third — and AC Rock 1 came in second place in the youth division. Richmond Rush would round off the youth’s top three.
Put on by Richmond Rush FC, this year’s Hwy 55 3v3 Challenge was dedicated to and benefitted Richmond County residents Corey Davis and Amy Faw — who are battling life-altering diseases.
Davis’ condition, Systemic Sclerosis (scleroderma), is an autoimmune disease that affects many things including the heart, lungs, kidneys, skin and circulation. Faw is fighting triple-negative breast cancer, which is a less common and more difficult to treat type of the disease.
